The Y’s swim lessons curriculum is designed to help participants reach their goals and provide a clear progression track.

Y SWIM LESSONS

The Y offers swim lessons to ensure every child/adult has the opportunity to learn to swim.  Living in an area with so many water sources, it is imperative that children be comfortable in the water, as well as have the ability to save themselves in a water emergency.  We work hard to teach valuable skills in a fun and safe environment.
