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. 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. What age group does the student fall into? What swim stage is the student ready for? The specific days and times of our classes can be found when you register on-line or by reviewing our Program Guide.
Have questions? Call the Y or speak with anyone in our Aquatics Department or on our Member Services Team. For a full listing of our swim lesson class options, days and times – please visit our Home Page and review our Program Guide.
Answer the questions below to find the swim lesson that fits.
Free swim lesson assessments are available to determine the appropriate swim lesson stage for each student. Students who took lessons under the previous Y swim lesson structure (with level names like Pike, Ray, Eel) can easily transition to the new curriculum. Discuss what level is appropriate with anyone in our Aquatics Department, or register for the Stage that is most appropriate for the swimmer’s abilities and our trained staff will place students in the correct Stage during the first lesson.
We provide classes of all kinds for children with disabilities. Classes are tailored around the individual or group’s needs. Instructors will lead the class in water adjustment, water safety, and stroke development. An emphasis will be placed on increasing flexibility, balance, range of motion, muscle tone and coordination as well as general social skills.
FEE: 30 minutes – 6 sessions $135
