Preschool

In this swim basics program, preschoolers learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills—swim, float, swim and jump, push, turn, grab. Through multiple sessions, children may progress to water movement, water stamina and stroke introduction.

In this program, children may begin at any of the six stages in our swim program: water acclimation to stroke mechanics. The YMCA aquatics director can help determine the appropriate level. For more information about the various levels, click on the program overview link above.

Adult

Adult lessons help those who have an acute fear of the water up to those that need advanced stroke development. The course is fun and low key, with the participant setting the pace of the course. Participants may begin at any of the six stages in our swim program: water acclimation to stroke mechanics.
