NURTURING SKILLS AND BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN THE WATER 

Everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. One of the most effective ways to accomplish this is to teach youth, teens, and adults to swim, so they can stay safe around water and learn the skills they need to make swimming a lifelong pursuit for staying healthy.

Y swim instructors are nationally certified. Their training includes CPR, AED, First Aid and Oxygen Administration. Swim lessons provide important life skills that could save a life and will benefit students for a lifetime.

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.  

 

SWIM BASICS
Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:
*  Swim, float, swim— sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit
*  Jump, push, turn, grab
