Group Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons at the Y got an UPGRADE! 

The YMCA is where America learns to swim!  Our nationally certified swim lessons are designed to help each participant learn how to swim better and be safe in the water. Our emphasis is on learning, and not on passing or failing. Each level is divided into 5 components: Personal Safety; Stroke Development; Water Sports and Games; Personal Growth; and Rescue.

Swim lessons are categphoto_phtaquaticcam06lengthsb_download_3orized by age, though a child’s individual ability is always taken into consideration. Private and semi-private swim lessons are also available. To register for swim lessons, click here.
