Swimming Lessons

When it comes to swimming and water safety, no one is trusted more than the YMCA, America’s swim instructor. In fact, group swim instruction was developed by the YMCA in 1906.

The YMCA swim lesson curriculum is designed to teach this lifelong skill to participants of all skill levels in a safe environment. We offer individual and group swim lessons, refer to our calendar for group session dates.
