Group Lessons

The YMCA swim lesson program is nationally recognized and was one of the first swim lesson providers in the country. YMCA lessons are unique due to their emphasis on preparing the swimmer for all aspects of water experience and life by teaching skills in these five focus areas:

  • Personal Safety
  • Personal Growth
  • Stroke Development
  • Water Sports and Games
  • Rescue
