The YMCA has been America’s leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. Our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty aquatics programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports. Programs and classes vary by location.

Youth Swim Lessons

The YMCA is committed to help all ages and swimmers develop their spirit, mind, and body. During our 7 week sessions, swimmers learn new skills, learn water safety, build positive relationships with their instructor, and have fun. Sessions includes five components – personal growth, personal safety, rescue skills, stroke development, and fun and games. These five components build confidence in each individual swimmer, inside the water and out. We try to make the lessons an all around positive experience for everyone involved because they give participants a chance to be exposed to a positive environment. Swim lessons are available for all ages, and private lessons are an option as well.
