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.

Infant/Toddler

Accompanied by an adult, infants and toddlers ages 6m-3yrs  learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention and the importance of supervision.

Beginners ages 3-5 will develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn personal water safety with two essential skills in all classes:
