TAKE ME TO...
Our learn-to-swim program is caring, personalized and condcted by a staff who bring the power of 75 years experience teaching kids to swim. With a passion for teaching kids, our program strives for personal growth, personal safety and stroke development among all participants.
PARENT/CHILD - AGES 6 MONTHS TO 36 MONTHS
Our goal for this class is to get both parent and child comfortable in the water. Children become familiar with aquatic activities through games and songs, while adults learn how to teach their child how to be safe in and around the water. FOCUS: Water exploration, pre-swimming skills.
PRESCHOOL LESSONS - AGES 3-6
Children learn the fundamentals of swimming in our heated pool. Very low student to instructor ratios combined with our highly trained staff make our program the best in the area.
FOCUS: Swimming fundamentals, personal safety, strength and endurance, coordination.
YOUTH LESSONS - AGES 6 TO 12
Children learn swimming fundamentals and can progress upward to pre-competitive stroke technique, while also receiving instruction in personal safety, water games and rescue skills. Two levels of instruction taught by our experienced staff, coupled with our personalized approach to youth swimming, make our program highly successful. Level 1 (Beginner Youth) focuses on swimming fundamentals, coordination and personal safety. Level 2 (Advanced Youth) builds upon these skills while expanding to include stroke technique, endurance, strength and personal rescue skills.
The Y offers private swim lessons for ages 3 through adult for those who wish to benefit from individual instruction. Whether you want to learn proper swimming techniques, refine your skills, or overcome a fear of the water, our expert insturctors will develop a personalized lesson plan tailored to meet your needs and assist you in reaching your goals.
Private Swim lessons are done by appointment only. Please contact Janelle Surkin, Aquatics Director, firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your appointment.
Swimming is a fun and beneficial activity that everyone can enjoy, regardless of ability. This class is for youth ages 6-19 that need additional supports. Instructors will meet the current needs of each child and help them gain and improve skills at their own individual pace. Experienced YMCA staff will give direct instruction while other staff will be in the water working side by side with your child. Children will experience fun, physical freedom, water safety skills and improvement in range of motion, flexibility and coordination. The lessons will conclude with an inclusive swim meet with other young swimmers at the last lesson. This program is offered for Spring Session II.
