These lessons follow the YMCA of the USA Progressive Swim Lesson Program. There are six levels of progressively challenging YMCA swim classes covering all strokes, diving fundamentals and safety skills. Lessons are offered during the weekdays as well as the weekends.
The purpose of the Y Swim Lessons Program is to develop competency in swimming along with confidence and endurance. The goals of the program are to teach personal safety, personal growth and stroke development in a values-based environment. Your child will be advanced to the next level only when he or she proficiently and safely performs the skills within his or her level. We teach individually to each child to advance their skills. We expect each child to learn and progress at his or her own rate.
