Swim Lessons

The YMCA has been teaching swim lessons for over 100 years. Although many other agencies and organizations offer swim lessons, the difference is this: The Y uses programs as a vehicle to deliver its mission, which is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. The YMCA swim lesson program is designed to ensure students’ safety, provide students with regular, progressive success, and make the learning process enjoyable.

We offer both group and private swim lessons. Swim lessons at the Y are available for ages 6 months through adults (children under the age of 3 must have a parent or guardian in the water with them during class).
