The YMCA has been teaching and encouraging swimmers of all ages, abilities and interests – for more than 100 years! One thing never changes: we’re still dedicated to helping people grow in skill and confidence for a lifetime of fitness and water safety. We focus on the key elements of aquatics: stroke development, personal safety, sports and games, plus personal growth and development.
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.
We are excited to get kids back into the water and learning life saving skills. Please refer to your local branch below for details on group lessons in your area.
