Swim Lessons

At the Y, we believe that the ability to swim is a critical life skill for every child, teen and adult. In group swim lessons, we use a variety of fun methods to help kids overcome fears, build confidence in the water and develop skills that last a lifetime. Qualified instructors meet kids at their own level, help families set achievable goals and celebrate success.
