Your Kids Will Make a Splash!

Ages 5-12

The YMCA’s youth swim lessons teach your child how to become safe and confident swimmers in a friendly and supportive small-group setting.

As their skills and confidence in the water grows young swimmers progress from learning basic water safety to swimming skills including:

  • How to tread and float in the water
  • Proper breathing techniques
  • Key swimming strokes (such as the front crawl and backstroke) needed to pass the YMCA swim test
  • Safety and rescue skills
  • Proper conditioning and personal fitness habits
