Group Swim Lessons

At the Y, we believe every child should learn to swim!

Our swim lessons are about more than just techniques and skills. They are about nurturing swimming skills, developing self-esteem, and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime. Children develop confidence around water as they learn water safety skills, stroke techniques, and discover the joy of swimming.

When it comes to swimming and water safety, no one is trusted more than the YMCA, America’s Swim Instructor. In fact, group swim instruction was developed by the YMCA in 1906.

SWIM LESSON STAGES

  • Stage 1: Swim Starters:
    Levels A & B parent/children are in the water together, ages 6 months-3 years.
  • Stage 2: Swim Basics:
    Levels 1-3 are the building blocks for learning swim strokes and have a strong focus on learning how to be safe in and around water. Preschool ages 3-5 and School-age 5-12. (Swimmers are divided both by age and ability.  A 3-year-old child will not be in the same group as a 12-year-old.)
  • Stage 3: Swim Strokes:
    Levels 4-6, using the foundation built-in levels 1-3, swimmers learn swim strokes and build endurance. School ages 5-12 years.
