We are now offering private swim lessons! Instructors will provide one-on-one in-water instruction while following safety protocols. Instructors are required to wear a face shield throughout the session for the protection of both student and teacher.
Lessons will also be offered for parents who would like to be in the water with their children. 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. YWCA offers class-based lessons for infants, toddlers, and youth at all four 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 as swim instructors.
