YOUTH SWIM LESSONS

The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. But our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty aquatics programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports.

 

SWIM LESSONS

This is a 7 week program with classes offered on Tuesday nights or Saturday mornings.

The first week of every new session is placement week, where children will be placed in the class that best fits their swimming abilities.
