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.
