Swimmers will find community of support in our YMCA swim classes where our qualified instructors teach basic to advanced swim skills. Whether you need to learn the essential basics of swimming or are an advanced swimmer wanting to perfect your technique and stroke, we have a class for you!
Parent/Child Swim Lessons
Take your little one and hop in the pool together for the first time for fun and enrichment! Together, you will learn how to feel comfortable in the water while preparing your child to learn to swim.
Preschool Swim Lessons
There is no better place to learn to swim than at the YMCA- often referred to as “America’s Favorite Swim Instructor!” Preschool swim lessons teach children valuable life skills, including personal safety, personal growth, stroke development, rescue, and water sports and games. YMCA swim lessons focus on positive values in a fun and caring atmosphere, and Preschool swim lessons teach basic skills progressing through four levels: Pike, Eel, Ray, Starfish.
Youth Swim Lessons
Swimming builds lifelong interest in swimming and develops the whole person: spirit, mind, and body. Each skill level builds upon the preceding level, with 6 levels total: Polliwog, Guppy, Minnow, Fish, Flying Fish, and Shark. Trained instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance, and social skills, while guiding students with praise and encouragement.
