Swim Lessons

Our staff works together to promote aquatics readiness, and to teach parents how to guide their children through the water and how to be safe around the water. The Y Swim Lesson program lays a good foundation of basic aquatic skills and safety. At each level, participants are involved in activities related to the five components of: personal safety, personal growth, stroke development, water games and sports, and rescues.
