No matter what the swim level, we have an instructor who can
help you or your child achieve greater confidence and skill in the water. All
lessons are taught by certified American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors and
Water Safety Aides. The YWCA offers class-based lessons for infants, toddlers
and youth at all five branches. In addition, private and semi-private lessons
are offered for a more personalized learning experience. Each class focuses on
helping children master basic swim strokes and master new skills before
advancing to a new level. All trainers are certified swim instructors with lower class size
