Swim Lessons Overview

Swim Lessons at the YMCA
At the Y, we believe the ability to swim is a critical life skill for every child and teen. In swim lessons, we use a variety of fun methods to help kids overcome fears, build confidence in the water, learn water safety and develop skills that last a lifetime. Our qualified swim instructors are trained in the philosophies and disciplines set by YMCA of the USA, a national leader in swim lessons for more than 100 years. All YMCA Swim Instructors are certified in CPR, AED and First Aid.
