Group Lessons

Children are taught in small groups with others of their own age and skill level to facilitate the students' socialization skills. Instructors use a child-centered approach which offers more active involvement and a better understanding of swimming, thus more learning and more fun. Of course, YMCA Character Development is at the core of each lesson, as are the essential components of stroke development, boating safety, personal safety, and rescue skills.


Varies by session. Please see the upcoming session flyer for details.

Private & Semi-Private Lessons
