For those of you who are new to Swim with Prim my students usually call me Coach Jessie or Coach Prim. This year I am celebrating my 49th year as a WSI and WSIT (Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Trainer). Hopefully some of your children, when they are ready (have to be able to swim at Level 4 and be at least 16 years old), can come and take classes from me to be WSI’s themselves. I love teaching children how to be safe in and around the water, as well as proper stroke technique. We have five children of our own, ages ranging from 23-35. All of my children have been trained and most will be working with me while in the water with the children (not all at the same time). We are adding some new WSI's to our staff this summer which we are really excited about. You will love them!
Daughter of Jessie Prim, I have been learning and teaching alongside my amazing mom for 20 years. I became Red Cross WSI (Water Safety Instructor) Certified in 2011. I am also a trained lifeguard and am CPR/First Aid certified. I absolutely love teaching. Seeing the students progress, have fun, and become water safe gets me excited! I also enjoy helping to train our new assistant swim instructors each summer. When I am not helping at Swim With Prim I am a nanny for two awesome boys and I teach piano and voice lessons.
I have been working in the swim industry for ten years. Four of those years, I have been the lead instructor for many swim classes in both a private and group setting. This year, I have taken on the position of assistant coach of the HSAA water polo team. I love to work with all ages, and find a special joy in seeing youth learn to swim and enjoy the water.
I’m currently studying Chemistry at the University of Oklahoma, but when I’m not at school, I get the joy of being a swim coach. This is my fifth year working for Coach Jessie at Swim with Prim and believe me when I say: I can’t wait! My first two summers I spent assisting the current (and amazing Water Safety Instructors) and then I had the opportunity to be trained to become a WSI by Coach Jessie herself. This is my third summer as a certified WSI, and I’m so eager to get back in the water with both returning and new students. The most important thing we teach: safety in and around the water! As well as stroke technique,
but all while having fun. So let’s jump in!
Assistant Swim Instructor
I’ve been working off and on with Swim with Prim since 2012. This is my absolute favorite job I have ever had. Working with children brings out your inner child; it just brings joy to my life.

Frequently asked questions
How do I register for classes?
To register please take a look at our "Class Schedule" and "Class Levels" pages to find classes suitable and then call us at (972) 208-1591 to reserve your class time. Then print out the registration form found above in the "Before Your First Lesson" section, fill it out and bring it to the first day of the sessions registered for.
Can I register online?
No, we work hard to make sure everyone is in the correct levels/classes so we only take registrations over the phone so we can discuss placement.
Can I pay online?
Currenly we accept cash, check, or Zelle payment which is due on the first day of class. Checks must be made out to "Jessie Prim" and have the student's name in the memo line. For payment thru Zelle please use email: email@example.com, name: Jessie Prim.
Do you have classes during inclement weather?
We still have classes if it is raining and we hear thunder. However, we will not have classes if we see lightning in our immediate area. If we see lightning during a class we will get out of the water for 20 mins, if we see no more lightning after 20 mins then we will get back in if class time is not already over. Also, if there is hail, tornando sirens, etc we will not have class during the time affected. Feel free to call us to check on weather. If we do not answer that typically means we are in the pool teaching and that it is safe to swim. The safety of you and your children is very important to us.
Do you have makeup lessons?
No, due to scheduling issues, we do not provide makeup lessons. If any lessons are missed because of weather we will work hard to catch up during the following lessons. If your child misses classes because of something other than weather, we are not able to provide makeups. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this.
Does registering by phone secure my lesson spot?
Yes! Once you register by phone and confirm with Coach Jessie or Coach Rebekah you are officially in that class. If you need to cancel or move your child to another session or time we ask that you do so at least one week prior to that session starting to allow people on waitlists a chance to join the class you are changing out of.
