ABOUT YMCA SWIM LESSONS
YMCA youth swim lessons increase the number of children who are safe around water. Our swim lesson curriculum supports stronger and safer swimmers! Here’s what you can expect:
► Water Safety Comes First
Water safety is a key focus for every lesson, for all ages. One of the first skills our swimmers learn is to ask permission to be in the water, a safety fundamental.
► Continued Parent Communication
Our certified instructors keep parents informed with continued and open communication. You’ll feel confident knowing your child’s progress throughout the entirety of the session.
► Activity & Game-Based Curriculum
Lessons are presented to our swim lesson students through fun activities, making lessons an enjoyable experience for everyone! A key component of everything “YMCA” is making learning fun.
► Extending Lessons Beyond the Pool
Our instructors are proactive in making sure every student is set up for success and have a library of home activities available to help parents guide children through additional activities.
► Top Notch, Certified Instructors
Every class is taught by a YMCA Youth Swim Lesson trained instructor (in addition to CPR, First Aid, and AED certification.) These instructors are dedicated to building strong and safe swimmers, all while having fun.
SWIM LESSON LEVELS
We offer lessons for all ages & abilities! The staff at our Welcome Centers can provide assistance or you can view our Lesson Selector to help you determine the swim lesson level your child should enroll in.
We also offer lessons for adults that need to learn how to swim or want to improve their strokes. Private or Small Group lessons are available by request; contact your YMCA for more information.
