Swimming

NOTE:  Lessons may be moved or rescheduled to accommodate swim meets/holidays as noted below (subject to change with as much notice as possible).

Once all goals are mastered in each level, the child will be eligible to advance to the next level upon availability.

All sessions consist of 8 x 30min lessons unless otherwise noted.


Parent & Child - Age 6 Months to 3 Years

The primary objective is water adjustment. Parents will be taught to work with their child and keep them safe in and around the water. Children play games that use basic movements in the water such as kicking, arm strokes, and breath control.  Basic survival skills including submersion, flotation and exiting the water are mildly introduced.  This class also serves as preparation for instructor taught classes beginning at age 3.

Adult Lessons - Ages 13 And Up - *Beginner Level Class*

Adult classes emphasize the basics of flotation and water acclimation as well as helping participants overcome the uneasiness sometimes felt by adults learning to swim. We teach beginners basic survival skills and introduce front crawl and elementary backstroke.

This class is intended for "adults" age 13+ who have little to no water experience and follows our Water Acclimation/Movement/Stamina curriculum.  Anyone age 13+ with advanced swim abilities should not enroll for this class.

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.
