Swim Lessons

Swim Lesson BoyLESSONS FOR LIFE

At the YMCA, we believe everyone should learn to swim.  Knowing how to swim offers a great way to stay in shape and a provides a lifetime activity.  A few things to keep in mind to get the most out of swim lessons.  First, learning to swim is progressive. Usually, it takes more than one session before a child or an adult is comfortable in the water. Swimming skills are progressive and build on each other, so it’s important to pick the right level for yourself or your child. Swim lessons are non-competitive, so don’t feel pressured to push a higher level if not ready. It’s normal and even advised, to take several sessions within the same level.

Each 2 week session consists of  8 swim lessons, each 30 minutes in length. Classes must have a minimum of 3 participants or it will be cancelled. SPACE IS LIMITED!

Registration must be completed by the Thursday before the start of each session.

DAYS: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday &  Thursday (Friday is make up day due to weather)
COST: Member – $49.00    Non-Member -$96.00
