We offer year round swim lessons for members and non members. For our members we offer lap and family swim, life guarding, scuba, swim team, stroke mechanics and a variety of exercise classes. The YMCA offers swim lessons for both preschool and youth. Preschool lessons are 30 minutes long and start at the age of 6 months to 5 years old. Classes are offered in our small pool year round, which is kept at 88 degrees. Preschool classes provide activities which will prepare a child to move in the water, improve strength, flexibility, coordination and self confidence. Youth classes are 45 minutes long and start at 6 years old through 15 years old. Classes are offered in our large pool year round, which is kept at 81 degrees. Youth classes prepare a child for personal safety, stroke development, personal growth and basic rescue.
Please see the descriptions of the classes below. If you are not sure what swimming level your child is in, please call us and we will test them and put them in the correct class level.
