Swim. Learn. Grow.

The YMCA Swim Lesson Program is nationally recognized and was one of the first swim lesson providers in the country. Our swim program is designed to develop a person emotionally, mentally, and physically. We will provide opportunities to learn not only swimming skills but, social skills, physical fitness, self-confidence, personal safety, and rescue skills. We will be building character through activities that encourage caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

A great place to learn to swim

The YMCA Swim Lessons Program was created by aquatic experts and field-tested at YMCAs across the country. Our program stresses a developmental approach to teaching and is based upon the latest research in child development and learning. Lessons are developmentally appropriate and designed to quickly and effectively teach swimming skills. Swim instructors will guide your child through a process of individual and group exploration conducted in a student-centered, caring atmosphere. Swim instructors have been given a variety of new creative teaching methods to use at all different swim levels.
