Swim Lessons

The YMCA has long been America’s favorite swimming instructor. In Y swim lessons, students learn water safety skills, build stroke technique, develop skills that prevent chronic disease, decrease high blood pressure, increase cognitive well-being and foster a lifetime of physical activity. Swim lessons are available for infants, youth, teens and adults at times designed to fit your busy schedule. Group, semi-private and private options available to ensure success for each person’s learning style.

Drowning Prevention

According to the Center for Disease Control, formal swim lessons can reduce drowning by 88%. Teaching children how to swim and be safe around water is one of the most important life skills parents can help their children learn. The YMCA partners with other local nonprofit organizations to ensure kids learn the swimming skills necessary to be safe around water.
