Nitro Swimming

Others "do" lessons, we TEACH swimming!™

Nitro was formed in August of 2006 by Mike and Tracy Koleber. The Nitro program moved into their new 30,000 sq ft indoor swimming home in Cedar Park in June of 2007. Four years later, in May of 2011, they opened a second location, Nitro Swimming, Bee Cave and as of 2023 Nitro has three locations with one more on the way.

Over the last several years, Nitro Swimming has become the leading competitive swim team and swim lessons provider in the Austin, TX area. Head Coach and owner of Nitro, Mike Koleber, has come a long way from his days as an age group swimmer in Michigan. As a 13-year-old, he began teaching swimming lessons on Saturdays to help out his father, a head coach in the area. After graduating high school, Coach Mike attended and graduated from Oakland University in Michigan where he was an 11-time NCAA All-American as well as team captain and Senior National Qualifier.

Nitro Swimming currently has two Indoor Swim Center locations in the Austin, TX area and one outdoor location.  Both Swim Center locations have Olympic-sized pools, which can be easily converted from short-course 25-yard lanes to long-course 50-meter lanes. These swim centers, in the Cedar Park and Bee Cave areas, are both indoor swim centers where conditions can be controlled year-round. The swimming pools have state-of-the-art water quality systems, making them optimum for safety and performance. Each swim center also has a swim lessons-only pool where temperatures and water quality are perfect for beginning and advanced swimmers.

The Nitro coaches and swim lessons instructors are the best anywhere. Mike has handpicked his coaching and swimming lessons staff. Common traits among all of the Nitro staff is their love for children, the sport of swimming and true dedication to teaching and inspiring kids to be the best they can be.

Looking back, Mike credits his dad, Don Koleber, for the opportunity to learn from the best and ultimately igniting his dream to developing the leading competitive swim team and swim lesson program in the country. Nitro’s meteoric rise has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Mike invites anyone out at anytime and we will be happy to show you around Nitro. They know you will LOVE it! “Others “do” lessons, We TEACH Swimming!”

The Nitro Experience

It's hard to describe the feeling the first time you walk into a Nitro Swim Center. There's definitely something special that takes place every day. It's not just the 50 meters x 25 yards full size Olympic competition and training pool. And it also isn't the warm water learn to swim pool that graduates hundreds of kids each year.

It's the Energy.

You see, Nitro Swimming is a feeling. Seeing and hearing our professional Coaches and Swim Instructors engaged in doing what they love is certainly a mainstay to our programs.

There's a lot of hustle taking place in and around our pools. And there are a lot of SMILES too.
