CONFIDENCE IN AND AROUND THE WATER
Welcome to the YMCA youth aquatic programs. ALL our group lessons offer guaranteed low student to instructor ratios, and all instructors are certified water safety instructors through the American Red Cross. Let them help you gain confidence in the water and improve your swimming skills.
When it comes to swimming and water safety, no one is trusted more than the YMCA, America’s swim instructor. The Y swim lesson curriculum is designed to teach this lifelong skill to children of all skill levels in a safe environment. We offer swim lessons for the beginner and for those looking to improve their strokes.
PARENT & CHILD
This water enrichment program provides a positive environment for children ages 6-36 months with a parent or guardian in the water. Parents are guided through basic swimming skills by our trained instructors. No more than eight children will be accepted into each class. Classes are 30-minutes in length and meet once per week.
This program offers children ages 3-5 their first experience in the pool without a parent, made possible through a variety of fun activities and games. Classes provide a step-by-step progression of swimming, water safety without the aid of a flotation device, designed to adequately prepare your child for the school-age program. Student/Instructor ratio will not exceed 5 to 1. Classes are 30-minutes in length and meet once per week. Preschool 1 & 2 will be held in the Instructional pool, Preschool 3 will transition into the Lap pool; Preschool 4 & 5 will be held in the Lap Pool.
Basic water skills such as water entry / exit, and kicking and floating will be the main emphasis along with a focus on pool safety rules. This is the perfect class for children needing additional support in transitioning to a class without a parent, those experiencing fear in the water, or with no previous lesson experience.
Children ages 6-12 years learn the fundamentals of swimming and water safety with increased stroke development and endurance as levels increase. Classes will not exceed a 6 to 1 student/instructor ratio. Classes are 45-minutes in length, meet once per week and are taught in the Lap Pool. The prerequisite for each level is successful demonstration of the skills taught in the preceding level. Beginners start at Level 1, which has no prerequisite.

HOME SCHOOL PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM (HS)
Join us this fall for our comprehensive Home School Physical Education Program, designed for home-schooled youth ages 6-12 interested in enhancing their current level of fitness. Your child will have the opportunity to explore the fun of fitness with other kids their own age, while participating in activities and games that help develop coordination, socialization, and group play. Activities include time in our gymnasium, outdoor fields (weather permitting), and our My Place. In addition to 45-minutes of gym-time fun, children join their appropriate level of youth swim program. Children that are not home-schooled are welcome to attend.
PRIVATE & SEMI-PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS
Gain confidence in the water and improve your swimming skills with swim instruction tailored to meet your individual goals. Private lessons are available to any age and ability. Let our certified American Red Cross water safety instructors work with you individually or in a small group of your choosing. All lessons are 30-minutes in length and can be scheduled at your convenience year round. We do our best to coordinate your preferred days and times while working with our pool and instructor availability. If registering for private + 1 or private + 2 lessons, you must provide all the swimmers. The YMCA is unable to match participants at this time.
