At the YMCA, we offer swim lessons for the beginner and for people looking to improve their strokes. Adult swim lessons are for people age 13 and older.
Participants are evaluated on the first day of class and placed accordingly. Whether you want to be a proficient lap swimmer, learn to float or acquire water safety skills, we are committed to working on your goals.
*For the comfort of our instructors, they have the option of utilizing a face shield. An emphasis on consistent social distancing during in-pool instruction (6' or roughly an arm's length plus a kick board) is our primary, CDC-advised modification to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This is in addition to our screening and cleaning protocols. All deck-based swim instruction will be administered with use of a face mask.
