SWIM LESSONS

 

LOOKING FOR THE NEXT SWIM LESSON SESSION? Check out our new calendar below!

 

 

The Y ensures a low instructor-to-student ratio to make sure your kids — and you — get plenty of personal attention.

Swim lessons not only keep kids safe in the water, but can also be the first step in:

  • Learning to lifeguard,
  • Being part of a swim team and
  • Exercising through lap swimming.

Our experienced Y instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance and social skills, while guiding students with praise and encouragement. Swim lessons are available for individuals of all ages and abilities. If you’re unsure of your child’s swim level, please contact the Aquatics Director.
