Confidence in the Water
Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. The YMCA offers swim lessons for all ages, swim leagues, Masters swim, adaptive swim, Terrified-of-Water classes and more. Swim year-round in our heated, indoor pools and swim with the folks that created group swim lessons!
Children learn to swim using the YMCA Progressive swim guidelines. Using both instruction and play, kids build their skills at their pace, ensuring that they succeed often, build confidence and have fun.
