Group Swim Lessons

Group Swim Lessons

YMCA Swim Lessons help adults, kids, and families learn an important life skill and support them in gaining the knowledge, ability, and stamina to become strong and confident swimmers.

The swim lessons program is organized into three categories, each of which comprises a number of stages:

  • Swim Starters Parent and Child (stages A and B)—develops water enrichment and aquatic readiness in infants and toddlers
  • Swim Basics (stages 1–3)—develops personal water safety and basic swimming skills in students of all ages
  • Swim Strokes (stages 4–6)—introduces and refines stroke technique in older students

Group lessons consist of 8 lessons per session, ranging from 30 to 45 minutes, (this depends on the age of swimmer and stage of learning.) Parents are asked to remain in the Aquatics Department during the allotted lesson time for any child under the age of 8.

Participants must tryout with one of the coaches before sign up.

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn
additional water safety skills and build stroke technique,
developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase
social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a
lifetime of physical activity.

Each day we will target a different stroke and go more into depth on the mechanics of them.
