Swim Lessons

Swim Safely

At the Y, we believe that the ability to swim is a critical life-saving 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.

Parent/Child: 6 months – 3 years old

The Parent/Child class teaches water safety and water adaptation, through songs and games for children and their parents. Children who are not potty-trained must wear swim diapers. Class will be offered in the Spring 2019.
