SWIM LESSONS

Swim Lessons

Swimming is one of the only sports that could save your life!

Teaching your child how to swim is one of the most important skills we teach at the Y. We offer lessons from ages 6 months thru adult.

Our swim lesson program focuses even more on keeping kids safe in and around water with an emphasis on true progression of swimming. 

Repetition of classes helps students master skills by increasing confidence and strengthens the connection in the brain that helps children learn. Studies show the more a child repeats a task, the quicker the progress.

Registration begins the 3rd week of each month, with classes beginning the first week of each new month.

Prices: Y Member $30/per month    Non Member $75/per month
