What is the best swim lesson level for my child?

Parent-Child
6 months – 3 years old
Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

Preschool
3-5 years old
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.

Youth
6-12 years old
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
13 years & older
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.

Please note: Please register early as swim lessons fill-up quickly! Please check the Charlotte Avenue YMCA Branch, Fort Mill YMCA Branch, or Rock Hill Aquatics Center Branch for swim lesson availability if the CSD Community YMCA is full.

Race for Chase Triathlon Training Program

The CMAK Foundation has collaborated with the YMCA to sponsor the Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon in memoriam of Chase Kowalski, the students, and educators of the Sandy Hook tragedy. This six week summer program aims to keep Chase’s energetic spirit alive by inspiring athleticism within children, ages 6 to 12, and providing them with a safe, healthy, non-competitive environment to develop a new love for the sport of triathlon.  All athletes are instructed in swimming, biking, and running, and are also taught the fundamentals of good nutrition and flexibility. At the end of program, all of the athletes in each community compete in a short-course USAT-sanctioned youth triathlon race. Registration is currently open and will close when spots are filled.
