YMCA Group Swim Lessons

Let’s get swimming! Find the date and time that works for you and your family, we’ll take care of the rest.

At the beginning of each group swim lesson session, our instructors hold a quick assessment of all participants and then place them into classes with their same skill level.

After extensive research, we determined this skill-based approach is the best strategy to meet all swim needs and help participants reach their goals.

Assessment based swim lesson:

  • Accommodates students of varying abilities and varying ages.
  • Fosters a sense of achievement from the start.
  • Stays grounded in a skill continuum that allows students to move easily from one stage to the next with clearly defined stages of progress along the way.

Group Swim Lessons are not offered at this time, as we follow the recommendations in the Governor's Safe Start Plan


Child with Adult

Accompanied by a parent or guardian, children will be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.



Introduction to the pool and develop safe water habits in a fun and encouraging environment. Students become comfortable with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit a body of water in the event they fall in. This introductory stage builds the foundation for the child’s future progress in swimming.



Teens can begin with water safety and continue on to learn and refine skills in the four competitive swimming strokes.



For adults who want to learn to swim or improve current swim ability.
