SWIMMING LESSONS 

The YMCA has a brand new swim lesson program!  Our new program concentrates FIRST on Safety Around the Water skills and knowledge, then once the fundamentals are accomplished we work on teaching strokes.

When registering for our pre-school (ages 3-5) or youth (5-12) you will need to register for the ability within the lessons.  If your child does not swim at all, register for Stage 1 (Water Acclimation).  We offer Stage 1 for both Pre-School & Youth.  Please use the Swim Selector to guide you to which class your child should be in.  If you need help please come to one of our FREE stage (ability) evaluations so that we can take a quick look at what they already know, and let you know the best stage for them.

STAGE ABILITY EVALUATIONS:
Tuesdays or Thursdays - 3:45pm-3:55 pm
Saturdays—11:15 am-11:30 pm
