Swim Lessons During COVID-19

We are updating our swim lesson protocols and procedures to be as responsible as we can with swimmers and COVID-19.

Choosing the Right Swim Lesson

We make it easy for you! Our system of swim lesson instruction allows for students of any age to follow the same steps in mastering swimming.

Parent with Child

Parent and child will love these fun, game-filled, half-hour lessons. Positive reinforcement helps the child enjoy the water, never forcing them to submerge. Parent/Child classes are an excellent introduction to the pool and our preschool swim lessons.


Pre-schoolers are learning so much everyday, and it's the perfect time to add swimming to that list! At the YMCA, preschool swim lessons are fun, engaging and sure to get your little one moving through the water in no time.

Beginner Youth

Ready to move from playing in the water to moving through the water? Beginner Youth lessons include using a kick board and front crawl to backstroke and rotary breathing.

Intermediate Youth

Participants will learn butterfly kick, breaststroke and work on endurance along with refinement of all skills. Intermediate swimmers must be able to swim independently 25 yards front and back crawl without in-water support or assistance.


Teen/Adult swim lessons will cover all the fundamentals of swimming, but at a pace and climate better suited for teens and adults. Emphasis is placed on floating, controlled breathing, front and back crawl, and elementary backstroke, as well as rotary breathing, backstroke, sidestroke, breaststroke, treading water, and endurance.

Advanced Youth Swim Lessons

Whether your trying to improve your swim team results, or just looking to become a better or faster swimmer, let our coaches get your advanced swimmer through the water faster.

Private Lessons

Personal Swim Lessons offer a one-on-one experience to learn or improve your swim techniques. For COVID-19 safety, parents/guardians are required to participate in the water with preschool and beginner youth.
