Swim Lessons

Learn to Swim at the Y!

The YMCA has long been America’s favorite swimming instructor. We offer swim lessons for infants, kids, teenagers, and adults.
We are thrilled to offer the new and improved swim lesson curriculum from YMCA USA.  Highlights include more streamlined lessons to help your child achieve faster, better parent communication tools, and home activity sheets.  The YMCA has spent 3 years retooling the swimming curriculum so we can help you make your children safer around water.
