Head Above Water Midland teaches swim lessons from March to end of October. Located centrally in Midland, Texas-we serve on average, over 256 families each year, completing more than 1,200 swim lessons a season. Our current facility allows for comfortable outdoor swimming, with a pool that we heat throughout the year. For our parents and caregivers attending lessons with the child, our waiting room is equipped with heating and air conditioning, a nursing station, a TV (complete with Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Video), a coffee and tea bar, a changing table with extra wipes and swim diapers, and a fridge stocked with cold drinks to enjoy while you wait for lessons.

Head Above Water Midland is currently in the process of building an indoor pool facility, breaking ground on our new facility in March of 2024, with the goal of opening this expansion of our swim school in the late spring of 2025. Until the facility is completed, we will remain operating like we have for the last five years with our season starting in March and ending in October, at our current facility.

Please note that program is unique. We are not for everyone.

Due to this philosophy, we require families to reach out to Coach Jess directly as we want to make sure that Head Above Water Midland aligns with each family we work with. We suggest reading our reviews on Google, as well as reviewing the below information, before joining our program.
