Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons at the YMCA focus on building strong confident swimmers using a skill-based curriculum that allows students to flow easily from one skill to the next with clearly defined stages of progress. Learning starts with water acclimation and focuses on vital water safety skills first, then progresses to stroke development. We’re proud to offer a variety of swim lessons for people of all ages and abilities.

Group Youth Swim Lessons

Parent & Child swim lessons are for ages 6 months – 3 years old
Preschool swim lessons are for ages 3 – 5 years old
School Age swim lessons are for ages 6 – 12 years old

With a parent in the pool, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable and develop swim readiness skills through water exploration. Parents learn about water safety and drowning prevention. Swimmers advance to Stage 1 when they are 3 years of age and can work with an instructor without a parent present.
Children develop comfort with underwater exploration, and learn to safely exit the water if they fall into a body of water. This stage lays the foundation for children’s future progress in swimming. Swimmers advance to stage 2/3 once they can submerge voluntarily.
Children focus on body position, directional change, and forward movement in the water. They will work to increase the distance they can swim by introducing breathing techniques and integrated arm and leg movements. Swimmers advance to stage 4 once they can swim 10-15 yards independently on their front and back.
Children develop stroke techniques for front and back crawl and learn breaststroke and butterfly kick. Water safety skills are reinforced through treading water and recovery strokes. Swimmers advance to our mini marlins once they can safely swim 50 yards using both freestyle and backstroke and have a working knowledge of breaststroke and butterfly.

Group Adult Swim Lessons

During our group adult lessons, instructors will use the same YMCA skill-based curriculum taught in a way that best suits our adult learners, Swim Basics is a course that combines YSL stages 1, 2, and 3 and focuses on basic swim skills for comfort, movement and safety in the water.

Mini Marlins

This program is designed for children interested in joining the swim team but still need to learn how to swim all four strokes. Swimmers who participate in this program will learn how to swim butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle. They will learn how to perform flip turns and starts. These are non-competitive group lessons organized by the coaching staff.

Marlins Swim Team

Being a Marlin exposes children to self-discipline, respect, good sportsmanship and fun while falling them to achieve their highest level of swimming and personal development. Visit their team site!
