My daughter is two years and 10 months old and I am would like to enroll her in Moderator cut: no ads lessons.
Could you please recommend me a place in Coppell or other place close to?

The Coppell YMCA is cheaper than AquaKids, even if you are not a member. I took my daughter to the Y at 9 months--at that age it was all about just being okay with the water and she totally is, so it was sort of a waste. I cant speak for the older classes. I don't know what Aquakids offers either, but the price was definitely double.

There is also a lady that teaches the infant survival version somewhere in Coppell--I briefly thought about it, but the time and money involved was too much and we don't have a pool.

There is also another woman that teaches out of her home--a friend just told me about it her. I'll see if I can get her info. She sounded really good.

We went with the Coppell YMCA. They have group classes as well as 1-on-1 classes.

I took my son and daughter to the Coppell Y. It was good for my son--he was older and got one-on-one lessons. For my daughter it was a waste. We go to a lady in Carrollton who teaches out of her home and has really helped my daughter get comfortable in the water and dog paddle a little.

If your goal with lessons is to get your kid truly swimming/self-sufficient in the water, as opposed to just doing swimming as a fun activity option, I highly highly HIGHLY recommend Infant Swim Resource (ISR). Infant Swim Self Rescue™ Survival Swimming Lessons to find an instructor. 4-6 weeks of lessons and she'll master a swim-float-swim sequence that she can use to save herself if she ever falls in the water accidentally. She'll even practice fully clothed. This is SO important even if you don't have a pool... we do, but we also have door locks and alarms and a pool fence and so I don't worry that much about my kids falling in accidentally. It's public pools, pools at other houses, etc. that make me nervous.

I also have friends at Aqua Kids in Flower Mound, and they are very happy with the lessons there. And, my oldest (age 6, an ISR graduate) is working on strokes through the learn-to-swim program at Lakeside Aquatic Club. I've been pleased with her progress and the lessons are about half the cost of Aqua Kids. LAC is trying to move to the new LISD natatorium when it opens later this year, and that is in far southern Lewisville, practically on the Coppell border.

Hi!
I strongly recommend Aquakids in Flowermound as well as AquaTots in Coppell.

I have friends in Coppell Y who have taken group lessons and are very happy with it.
Group lessons didn't work for us due to time conflicts but we strongly recommend private lessons at Y.

There will be lot of options during summer time. But now i think, options are very limited. It has to be a indoor swimming pool to run classes year round. And they do not offer lot of classes year round. There will be a winter break for indoor pools as well. If you are going to send it to Coppell YMCA, you need to be very quick. This place gets full quickly. It is difficult to find a spot. Other than Coppell YMCA, I also took my kid to Irving YMCA and North lake aquatic center. Most of the times, these classes are very casual. They do not teach much in these places. It is a very slow learning process. There is also a very good swimming pool (I think, Emler) near Preston and 635.
