Swim Lessons

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. Read More...


Swim Team

Competitive swimming builds cardiovascular health, flexibility, muscle tone, and much more. Goal setting, confidence, and self-discipline are benefits. Our swim team programs are designed to emphasize technique, endurance, sportsmanship, and most importantly, to have fun! To develop strong athletes, we believe that you must focus on more than just the physical aspect of training. Swim meets are held regularly all year and we also offer Summer Leagues in the Dallas area.
