Welcome to Michael Phelps Swimming, Michael Phelps is passionate about growing the sport of swimming and encouraging more children to learn the sport. As a child, he learned to swim in a school in North Baltimore, called the North Baltimore Swim School. It was there that he learned water safety and overcame his fear of water. After a lot of accomplishments, both in and out of the water, Michael Phelps is able to invest in the very program that taught him. This is a program that he fully supports and believes in. This swim school gives Michael a direct opportunity to reach his personal goals in taking the sport further, while giving back to the community.
