Greater Omaha Youth Swimming Lessons
Swimming is a valuable life skill, a great exercise routine and a challenging sport. The YMCA of Greater Omaha offers youth swimming lessons (for all ages), family swim sessions, competitive swimming, and adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs. At the Y, everyone can safely enjoy some time at our pools, get wet and have fun!
Our youth swim lessons teach important life-saving and water safety skills, with classes designed to introduce your child to swimming in a safe environment.
- Swim Lessons and Classes for all ages (starting at 6 months)
- Private and small group classes
- Youth Swim Team
- Swimming lessons for children
Our parent/child swim lessons are designed help parents and their children have fun in the water. The parent guides their child to learn aquatic skills and safety, creating a great learning environment for the child and an enriching experience for the parent. Classes are appropriate for kids ages 6 months to 3 years.
Each level of the preschool and youth swim lessons focus on personal safety, growth and development, as well as water sports, games, and rescue skills. Each of the kids swimming progresses through the program at their own pace, with each level of the program designed to take up to a year to complete.
Our aquatics directors are happy to help make sure your child is placed in the class best suited for their swimming level.
Some children respond better to more individual time with the instructor. Our 30-minute private and small group classes offer an environment that fosters a one-on-one learning experience. Small group youth swimming lessons are limited to two to four children per class, depending on location.
Our youth swim lessons are also a part of our special needs adaptive program, for kids who have a physical or mental disability. An aquatic environment is the perfect place to experience many social, emotional and physical benefits. We provide a fun and safe environment for participants to meet new friends and learn basic water safety skills. Classes are offered at our Armbrust, Maple Street and Council Bluffs locations.
