New Swim Lesson Program – Coming in March
All Y Branches

Learning to swim isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity!
The YMCA can help keep your kids safe.

As part of a nationwide YMCA effort to provide consistency in swim lesson formats and increase the safety of children in and around water, we’ve recently upgraded our swim lesson program. The upgrade will enable our instructors to provide more personalized attention to all swimmers, and we’ve added elements of the YMCA’s Safety Around Water program that teaches the critical skill sets kids need if they unexpectedly find themselves in water.  Learn more.
