Youth swim lessons

Youth Swim Lessons

Learning to swim has many benefits for young children! YMCA youth swim lessons equip young children with essential water safety skills, boost confidence, foster friendships, and promote a love of physical activity. Swimming can also improve coordination, motor skills, and aerobic capacity. Plus, it’s fun!

From Swim Basics (stages 1, 3, and 3) to Swim Strokes (stage 4) YMCA youth swim lessons offer a strong foundation, setting youths on a path to a lifetime of aquatic adventures and well-being. Kindergarteners may enroll in youth Swim Basics instead of preschool classes.

Choose the right swim level for your child with our swim lesson selector. If you need assistance, contact our helpful aquatic staff.
