HELP KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE.
Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or caregiver, you can’t keep your children sidelined. You need to equip them with the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.
There is a reason the Y is referred to as America’s Favorite Swim Instructor. In Y Swim Lessons, not only are you taught how to swim, but you also learn about yourself, about safety and rescue skills, and about water activities you can enjoy for a lifetime. Instruction is caring and personalized. A variety of classes are available to meet your family’s needs. Class size is determined by considering safety factors and the age of the participants, making sure classes don’t get too big to be uncomfortable.
(kid’s 6 mos-3 yrs. & parent)
The class is designed to get the child & parent comfortable and safe in the water. Instructor lead classes are designed to allow the child to have fun in the water while the parent guides them to learn aquatic skills. Children must wear swim diapers. No regular diapers, please.
This is a child’s first experience in the pool without parental assistance! Intro skills and safety, the building blocks of swimming, are taught. Games that use basic movements such as kicking, arm strokes, and breath control are implemented.
Class designed for beginner and intermediate skill levels. The focus is on skill and personal development.
For those not yet ready for swim team but ready to improve their stroke development and endurance.
ADULTS: (Ages 13+)
It’s never too late to learn how to swim! If you fear the water, don’t worry – we’ll move slowly! Advanced adults wanting instruction should sign up for private lessons.
