Swim Lessons At The Y
Swimming is a great way for your child to gain self-confidence, learn
new skills, and become safer in and around the water. Our swim lesson
curriculum is based on the YMCA’s Swim Lesson Program and levels
are broken up into Parent and Child, pre-school, and school aged swim
levels. Our Swim Lesson programming and classes are developmentally
appropriate and teach skills well beyond just swimming.
The pre-requisite for each level is the successful
demonstration of skills from the preceding level, except for Level 1,
which has no pre-requisites besides being minimally being five years
old and currently attending Kindergarten. Each level includes water
safety topics, progressive swim skills, learning through play and discussions
about the YMCA four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
Caps and goggles
are highly recommended for all swim classes.
Our Swim Lesson class sessions are traditionally held
once a week and run for seven weeks and sessions are offered year round.

be appropriate for your swimmer? Please email our Aquatics
