Skill Levels: Pikes, Eels, Rays & Starfish (Ages 3-5)
Preschool swim lessons focus on basic swim skills and pool safety. Children move through four progressive levels as they increase swimming distance, endurance and ability with each level. These 45-minute swim lessons are taught by certified YMCA swim instructors. The first level is pike (beginners); they are unable to swim without flotation. It is not uncommon for a student to spend multiple sessions in the same level until achieving the skills to advance to the next level.

Swim Evaluations are required for entrance into any levels higher than Pike or Polliwog.  Call Aquatic Director to schedule an evaluation.  Returning Participants may register for level noted on their progress reports.

Polliwog, Guppy, Minnow, Fish, Flying Fish & Shark
