GROUP SWIM LESSONS

Swim Starters

AGES 6m-3​

Swim Starters develops water enrichment and aquatic readiness in children ages 6 months to 3 years. This category focuses on developing swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences. Parents also learn how to supervise children in the water, how to prevent accidents and how to plan for emergencies.

Swim Basics

AGES 3-12+

Swim Basics develops personal water safety and basic swimming skills in students of all ages. Swimmers develop a high level of comfort in the water by practicing safe water habits, engaging in underwater exploration, and learning how to swim to safety and exit if they fall into a body of water.

Swim Strokes

AGES 5-12+

Swim Strokes introduces and refines stroke technique in older students (school age, teens and adults). Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

Group Swim Lessons

Learning to swim at the Y is more than just stroke development. Children are taught in small groups with others of their own age and skill level to facilitate the students' socialization skills. Of course, Y Character Development is at the core of each lesson, as are the essential components of stroke development, water safety, personal safety, and rescue skills. Be a part of it all, and experience swim lessons the Y way.
