Summer Swim Lessons

At the Y, swim lessons save lives. Youth learn not only how to have fun learning to swim, they gain lifelong confidence in and out of the water. Trained YMCA staff teach essential swimming and water safety skills to youth ages infant-17 years in a fun and positive environment. Adult classes are available at select locations.

Participants can register for as many summer sessions as they please. Sessions run for 8 days and classes are 35 minutes long.
