SWIM LESSONS

Strong Swimmers. Strong Kids.

Our swim lessons and classes aren’t just great for exercise; they also build life skills and offer the opportunity for kids and families to bond in a safe environment.

As "America's swim instructor," the YMCA teaches children of all ages and from all backgrounds that water should be fun, not feared, if you know how to stay safe in and around water.

Water Safety.

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water — but as a parent or caregiver, you can’t keep your kids sidelined. By equipping kids with the tools they need to be confident in and around water, they’ll be able to reap the health benefits of exercise, bond with family and friends and take pride in their new skills — safely.

More than 100 years ago, the Y created the concept of group swim lessons and to this day, teaches more than 1 million children invaluable water safety and swimming skills every year. The Y’s size and reach as a vital community asset uniquely positions the organization to bridge the gap in the delivery of swim lessons and water safety education.
