School Age Swim Lessons
Youth swim lessons are offered year-round for swimmers ages 6 and up of all skill levels.
YMCA swim lessons emphasize water safety, skill and stroke development.
Beginning swimmers are introduced to basic stroke movement and learn how to be more comfortable in the water. More advanced swimmers are instructed in stroke technique, endurance and safety skills.
YMCA swim lessons have a low child-to-instructor ratio to ensure plenty of time in the water. Swim lessons and classes are available during the week and on weekends. Parents are welcome to watch lessons from the pool deck.
All children are evaluated at the beginning of each session and placed in the appropriate level based on demonstrated ability.
Level 1: Water Acclimation
Level 2: Water Movement
Level 3: Water Stamina
Level 4: Stroke Introduction
Stage 5: Stroke Development
Stage 6: Stroke Mechanics
