Parent & Child Swim Lessons

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness. Parents learn about water safety and drowning prevention.


Children learn water safety, basic swimming competency, and progress through levels as they develop skills.

School Age

Students learn personal water safety, achieve basic swimming competency, and progress to learn about the four competitive swimming strokes.

Teen & Adult

Teens and adults can choose from different levels of classes, beginning with water safety and swimming competency, to building and refining swimming stroke techniques.

Private & Semi-Private Lessons

Group lessons aren't for everyone, and that's okay! One-on-one time with a YMCA swim instructor might be just what you need. Semi-private lessons are also available for two students who would like to work with one instructor.
