Group Swim Lessons

Swim lessons are important in a child’s life because it equips them with the skills that they need to feel safe around the water and put your mind at ease. Learning to swim not only allows kids to have fun in the water, but it can also save their life by teaching them how to stay afloat in the water!

At the YMCA we want everyone in our community to learn safety around water. We specifically do that by teaching swim lesson. It’s important for everyone to know how to swim because water can be very dangerous. Approximately 3,500 people a year die in the United States as a result of drowning.

Group Swim Lessons

Swim Starter class allows the new little swimmer to adjust to the aquatic environment and begin to learn aquatic safety. Basic water skills such as kicking, breathe control, body control, movements in response to visual or verbal cues will be taught.  It is a wonderful time to begin to explore the water while bonding with your child.  This level allows your child to transition to Swim Basics lessons more easily.

Please note that all lessons are taught utilizing the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim curriculum.  The use of float belts or other personal flotation devices will not be allowed.

Parent must get in the water.
