Group Swim Lessons

Group Swim Lessons

At the Y, we believe everyone should know how to swim! Our group swim lessons are designed to teach this lifelong skill to children and adults of all skill levels in a safe environment.

Develop confidence around water as you learn water safety skills and stroke technique, and discover the health benefits of swimming when integrated into your workout plan.

Our group swim lessons are about more than just the techniques and skills. They are about nurturing swimming skills, developing self-esteem and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime.

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.
