Safe swimming and having fun. That’s what it’s all about at the Y.

“I can swim the whole way across the pool!” Hearing those excited words coming from a beaming child is about as rewarding as it gets. Every day, children learn the basics of swimming at the Y or enhance their skills with our progressive lessons that turn beginners into experts, polliwogs into sharks. While developing new skills, our kids are having fun, being healthy, learning safety, making new friends and building confidence! Make sure that your kids get plenty of personal attention, we provide a low instructor-to-student ratio: 1:4 preschool and 1:5 school age. And with our wide selection of classes, you’ll be able to find one that fits your child’s needs and schedule.

You can learn to swim! Using the nationally recognized Y Progressive swim program, our certified guards and instructors ensure that everyone, regardless of age or ability, learn skills appropriate for their abilities in a safe, fun environment. Choose from Preschool and School Age lessons designed to grow their confidence in the water no matter their skill level. And remember our TOTS (Parent & Child) Swim Lessons introduce infants and toddlers to the water while teaching parents how to guide and supervise them, have fun, build trust and confidence.
