For more than 160 years, the YMCA has nurtured potential and united communities across America to create lasting, meaningful change. Everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. One of the most effective ways to accomplish this is to teach youth, teens, and adults to swim, so they can stay safe around water and learn the skills they need to make swimming a lifelong pursuit for staying healthy.
Our Y swim instructors are nationally certified. Their training includes CPR, AED, First Aid and Oxygen Administration. All swim instructors will be wearing masks and leading non-contact instructions. They will be providing lessons, while socially distanced in the water and from the pool deck.
Swim Starters and Swim Basics classes require one parent* to participate in the pool and on the pool deck. Groups will be socially distanced from others.
Swim lessons provide important life skills that could save a life and will benefit students for a lifetime. All ages – from infants to seniors – can learn to swim at the Y. Please visit the web site of the Y that best meets your needs and review our class offerings to find one that fits your family’s busy schedule.
*At the Y, we know families take a variety of forms. As a result, we define parents broadly to include all adults with primary responsibility for raising children, including biological parents, adoptive parents, stepparents, grandparents or any type of parenting relationship.
