Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

Whether it is gaining the confidence that comes from learning how to swim or building positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork from being part of a swim team, swimming at the Y is about building the whole person from the inside out.

The YMCA Swim Lesson Curriculum is a core group of aquatic skills every person needs to be safe around water.  As the foundation of our program, these skills allow students to learn correct swim stroke techniques.  Students begin with and build upon skills they are ready to learn, helping them to celebrate their successes, build self-confidence, and enjoy learning to swim and water safety.
