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.

2022 Safety Around Water
October 31 - December 18, 2022

The YMCA Safety Around Water program is a water safety swimming program to teach kids and their families water safety skills to prevent drowning. Our program helps youth overcome fears they might have and gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment. This program is offered at a nominal fee to assist more youth with the opportunity to participate in swim lessons to reduce their chance of drowning.
