Swimming Lessons

DIVE INTO A WORLD OF AQUATICS

Children in our aquatics programs do more than just learn to swim; they develop self-confidence and perseverance.

We cultivate lifelong swimmers who enjoy their time in the water, all while introducing personal water safety while offering levels of progressive classes.

Notes: Registration will remain open until the day prior to the start of each session if space remains in a particular class. Children are advanced to the next level only when they can proficiently and safely perform the required skills. We know children learn and progress at their own rate – many factors contribute to swimming ability: size, maturity, muscle definition and body composition – just to name a few. Do not be discouraged if your child doesn’t complete all the skills within one session. Your child needs to know it is acceptable to take as much time as is necessary to master the skills. Each child at the Y is given the same care and respect during his/her journey through swimming instruction. Appropriate swim attire is required prior to entering our pools. This means a suit made of swimsuit materials, purchased in a swimsuit department. We ask that all parents and other spectators observe swimming lessons from the poolside deck in order to minimize distraction for lifeguards, instructors and students. No make-up dates are available for missed classes due to circumstances outside of the Y’s control.
