Dallas-Fort Worth Swim Lessons
Private Swim Lessons
Happy Swimmers started teaching at-home swim lessons in the DFW East Texas region and has never looked back.
DFW is home to many good swim schools and city programs, so why do we offer swimming lessons in an area that already has so many swimming teachers?… Some kids do well in boisterous social large group swim lessons, but many kids do not, and prefer the quiet, trusting setting of their own home pool and a dedicated, kind-hearted, patient instructor. Our DFW swimming lessons specialize in the latter style of teaching.
Are Happy Swimmers Private Swim Lessons available for my area?
• If you enroll in April or May, getting your lesson preferences are usually no problem with any of our local Dallas Fort Worth swim instructors.
• If you enroll in June, please do so as early in the month as possible, and have some greater flexibility of times and days that would work.
• If you enroll in July, please be flexible on your times, and/or know that some early season clients will finish and open up time slots for you to take. Ask our office.
Can we serve your Texas area? If you’re in the metroplex, it will be our pleasure to serve you. Call us at 512-333-2480 or email us easy on our contact page.
Swim Lesson Tip:
Goggles are ok for 3 year olds and up during lessons- IF they fit well and don’t leak much. We encourage parents to get quality goggles, like Speedo’s for children, not the $1.50 pair from the drugstore which leak incessantly. A decent, quality pair of goggles can be very useful in the early stages of learning swimming.
This was one swimming lesson tip in a series sprinkled around our website. For the complete list, Visit our swim lesson tips and FAQ tab, and to get more tips and specials, follow us on Twitter.

I am a former open water lifeguard from the beaches in Destin, Florida. Ive worked with adults and kids in a Jr. lifeguarding program. For the last 5 years I have been a professional lifeguard and athlete in the US Lifeguard Association. My Favorite aspect of teaching, is to help others acquire new skills. I love being active.
Welcome Chandler, we’re happy to have you!
With 4 years prior experience, and 10 years of swimming experience, I am knowledgeable in swim instructing and all four strokes. I trained very hard to swim competitively and medaled in the Junior Olympics! Some of my past students have gone on to participate in the Iron Man.
I have 5 years of lifeguarding experience and over 10 years of swimming experience and a medal from the Junior Olympics! The best part about lifeguarding events is getting to have fun and meet great people, while keeping everyone safe.

Hello! I have been teaching swim lessons for a little over three years now and it is by far my favorite job I have ever had! I am CPR certified by the American Heart Association and I am also a nursing student. I was on a competitive swim team for a little over 4 years, so I ham very familiar with all the strokes. I am currently attending the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas and I love it. Teaching swim lessons is awesome because I get to work with kids. It makes me so happy seeing them progress throughout the summer. I want to make sure that every child knows how to be safe in the water and has a basic understanding of swimming. I have taught all ages up to 8 years.
Hi there! I’m beginning a job as a speech therapist this upcoming school year, and am SO excited to spend this summer break in the pool teaching kiddos to swim! Teaching swim lessons combines two of my great loves- helping kids reach their full potential, and being in the water.
I’ve coached the 6 & under as well as older age groups on swim team for several years, as well as taught private individual and group lessons to swimmers from zero swimming ability, to swimmers needing to perfect their strokes. I think the secret to teaching kids is building trust and making their time with you FUN! Other than coaching and teaching swim I have tons of experience babysitting and working with kids of all different kinds of special needs as a Speech Pathologist.
I love helping new swimmers gain confidence in their swimming ability that allows them to be safe and have fun in the water, and would love to share my love for swimming with you and your family this summer!

4 years experience teaching swimming 🙂
I have been teaching swim lessons with Happy Swimmers for the past 4 summers! I have experience teaching all ages, but I love my 3-5 year old babies! We’ll have so much fun making splashes, blowing bubbles, and learning how to swim just like a big kid.
Lifeguarding for Happy Swimmers is the best job I have ever had!
I love summer! What better way to spend a hot summer day than by the pool soaking up the sun! Even better, hanging out with the kiddos, having fun, and keeping everyone safe and smiling!
I have TONS of guarding experience from community pools, universities, camp waterfront and slides, and even guarding paddle-boarders from the back of a boat! Let’s get this summer started!
I have been a swim coach for over 7 years. I have worked in both the public and private sectors. I have 2 years of experience coaching beginners swim team. I prefer to teach kids age 4-17 and adults. I tend to have the most fun coaching when the kids in my classes are high energy. I do my best to make sure my students are comfortable when they are learning to swim; I want my students to be as excited about swimming as I am. My favorite skills to teach are flip turns and dives.
I have been a lifeguard for just about 3 years. I have been a lifeguard for the YMCA and Lifetime Fitness. I mainly work as a lifeguard because I am studying to earn a nursing degree and working as a lifeguard allows me to practice some of the skills I will use as a nurse.
I serve the Dallas Fort Worth communities of Flower Mound, Southlake, The Colony, Plano, among others.

I’m your Region’s Manager of Swim Instructors. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.
A little more about me… I’ve been actively teaching swim lessons for six years and enjoy this more than any other profession I’ve ever been involved in. There is nothing better than doing what you love for a living and being able to teach and share it with others. I get to teach a child; learn life long skills that last a life time, as well as safety and the joy of the water. I’m always amazed at how students learn so much in a short period of time. It is also fun to watch them “Strut Their Stuff” when they become confident at what they have learned. I started swimming at age 3 and have never enjoyed anything more than the water. I have been a competitive swimmer, PADI diver and Coast Guard Auxiliary member for many years. Welcome to Happy Swimmers! I am happy to help.
I have worked as a swim instructor for 3 years and it is one of the most fun jobs that I have had. I love helping children gain confidence in the pool. It is one of the most rewarding feeling in the world to watch a child progress in their swimming ability. I love working with older children between ages 5-12. I have experience working with young children and have been told that I have a talent working with scared children in this age group. I also have experience working with adults of all swimming ability. I am currently a master instructor for Lifetime Fitness.
I have been a Lifeguard for 6 years, three of those years I worked as a waterfront lifeguard at a camp in Austin, Tx. The last 3 years I have worked for Lifetime Fitness in San Antonio as an Aquatics Supervisor in this role I help run swim programming and lifeguard management. As a lifeguard my number one priority is keeping everyone safe and stopping disasters before they happen. I am a fitness enthusiast and I am currently in the hiring process for the San Antonio Fire Department.

Hi my name is Timothy Nabonne most people call me TJ or Tim. I have done lifeguarding since I was old enough to pass the exam. Ive also had the opportunity to teach and work with kids of all ages through the YMCA and other programs. My intentions in guarding are to bring a mixture of fun and safety to wherever I’m privileged to do so. An interesting fact about me is I also teach country style swing dance and two-step.
I serve the Dallas-Fort Worth communities of Dallas & Fort Worth proper, Farmer’s Branch/ Carrollton, Plano, Irving, Grand Prairie, among others.
Hi, my name is Travis! I’ve been doing private swim lessons for 3 years now working with around 15-20 kids ranging from ages 4-13. I think one of the things that make me special is my ability to connect with children and get them involved and happy with being in the water. The part I like most about teaching swim lessons is seeing the face of a child light up when they do something they thought was impossible. That feeling is completely unique, I also love that I’m influencing the kids in a positive way for the rest of their life. I worked as an AVID tutor at the high school and middle school level for 3 years as well! As you can probably tell I really love to teach!
I’ve always loved swimming! The idea of becoming a lifeguard seemed like a dream! Now that I’m finally certified I’m excited to do my best and to ensure the safety of all clientele. A fun fact about me is that I learned how to swim at the age of 4 and I’ve been swimming ever since. I even ended up competing at a state level on my high school swim team! I also was in Boy Scouts till I was 18 and left as an Eagle Scout!
I serve the DFW communities of Dallas, Lewisville, Keller, Irving, Frisco, Grapevine, among others.
I have 3 years of lifeguard experience.
I started teaching swim lessons when I was 16, since I had just learned how to swim I understand the fear of the water. Not only that but with 4 years of experience now I can confidently say I can teach children how to relax in the water and then take it further from there. I want to be able to build a strong foundation in swimming with anyone I teach, and watch as it blossoms into a hobby or even a passion. A fun fact was that just last summer I two of the seven year old kids I had qualified for TAAF State Championship.
I’m looking to make an impact on the life’s of the people I meet. I want to be able to provide not only a fun but safe environment for everyone this summer. I enjoy the opportunity to be a role model for not only what a lifeguard should be, but what everyone should be in the water. Funny enough I didn’t learn how to swim in till I was 15 and now the water is a second home for me.
I serve the Dallas-Fort Worth communities of Dallas, Forth Worth, Arlington, South lake, and Richardson, among others.
My name is Whitney Spears. I have lived in Dallas for two years, but grew up outside of Chicago and in Fairfield County, Connecticut. I have been teaching swimming during the summer on and off for 3 years. When I am not teaching swimming I am in the classroom, volunteering, singing, cooking, performing or working backstage at a play.
Teaching swimming is something that is continually rewarding as I have seen many children gain the confidence to swim on their own. I began teaching swimming out of college and have continued to teach during the summers. I have worked with children ages 3 year through adult. All ages are rewarding in their own way.
