This year, the Sewickley Valley YMCA launched new lessons to increase the accessibility and enjoyment of swimming to all ages and skill levels. The latest evolution of Y Swim Lessons accommodates varying abilities to help foster a sense of achievement as swimmers progress between levels. Through this approach, advanced swimmers flow more easily to higher levels while swimmers who need more instruction can learn at their own pace. This results in more confident swimmers who stick with lessons and develop a love for swimming that can last a lifetime.“We want swim lessons to be a rite of passage for ALL children, and to help kids stay safe in and around the water while developing a love of swimming,” said Kelly Wagner, Senior Director for Aquatics. Our Aquatics staff members are available to answer any questions about the swim program and to help place your child at the appropriate swim level.

The Y will be offering one free swim lesson per the calendar year for each child under 12 and on an active family membership. This extends to preschool level swim lessons. Additional lessons will be charged at the full rate. Members may not register for their free lesson online, and refunds will not be provided.
