Swim Lessons

Kids Swim Program

Learn a life skill along with getting exercise and participating in a challenging sport. We offer multiple levels to comply with you or your child’s comfort level.

Swim Lessons provide important life skills that could save a life, and will benefit you for a lifetime. All YMCA swim instructors are nationally certified and are trained in CPR, AED, First Aid and Oxygen Administration. Swim lessons are ideal for those beyond the age for progressive swim classes yet too young for adult classes. Highly trained aquatics instructors work one-on-one with each participant to set personal goals and meet new challenges. This enables participants to progress at their own pace so that they can develop the skills necessary to swim safely for fun and exercise
