Swim Lessons

The Y is the nationwide leader in helping people of all ages feel safe in the water. Each year, the Y teaches thousands of children and adults to swim and certifies hundreds of lifeguards. From swim lessons to birthday pool parties and swim leagues, you’ll find plenty of fun in the water at the Y.

The Y is proud to offer swimming programs for members of any age or ability level, from infants to seniors. Our friendly and enthusiastic staff focuses on safety, stroke development and personal growth for each swim level. Programs are offered throughout the week at convenient times. You are sure to find a class to accommodate your schedule.

We help build a foundation for a lifelong appreciation and interest in aquatic activities as well as in other aquatic environments. The Y incorporates character values such as caring, honesty, faith, responsibility, and respect in all our programming.

The Y swim lessons are divided into three programs: Parent/Child, Preschool, and Youth Swim Lesson Levels. If you are unsure of your child’s placement in our swim lesson program, an evaluation can be provided. Please inquire with our Welcome Center staff.
