Swim Lessons


There is no better place to learn to swim than at the Y!  We offer Parent/Tot, Preschool, Youth, and Adult swim lessons.  When you register for swim lessons at the Y, they will do so much more than learn to swim.  Our trained instructors work with your child on confidence, water safety and swimming skills while having fun!  All classes must have a minimum of 3 participants to hold the session.

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

PARENT/TOT: 6 months – 36 months
PRESCHOOL: 3-5 years old
YOUTH: 6-12 years old

Swimming lessons are taught on a progressive level. As a swimmer accomplishes the tasks for a certain level, he/she will move on to more advanced skills.

Each lesson contains aspects of the YMCA character values. 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!
