We are now offering swim lessons for students who do not require assistance in the water. Lessons will be focused on developing swim strokes and building endurance. Instructors will teach from the deck and will be close enough to provide swimmers assistance if necessary.
Lessons will also be offered for parents who would like to be in the water with their child. These classes will be offered in both private and group settings. Schedules and availability vary per location.
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 ratios.
