Swim Lessons


For over 100 years, the YMCA has been one of America’s favorite swim instructors and a leader in water safety. Our proven curriculum and friendly environment enhance skills, all while having fun.

Swimming is a life-saving skill, so the Y offers a wide selection of preschool, school age, and adult swim lessons that build strong and confident swimmers. It uses a problem-solving, guided-discovery teaching approach in a positive, caring environment. 

The Y’s swim lesson progression curriculum is designed to help participants reach their goals and provide a clear progression track.

Benefits of this approach include: 

Recommended skills for all to have around water

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills: Swim, float, swim – sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit.

Skills to support a healthy lifestyle

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.
