Swim Lessons

Learn to swim!

Based on guidelines from health and government officials, we are offering limited hours and reduced capacity at our branch pools. Please see branch offerings in the table below for more details. We can't wait to have you back in the water with us again!

Y swim lessons are designed for all ages and abilities, starting at 6 months, because everyone deserves to learn this essential life skill.  With a focus on water safety and skill development, the YMCA Swim Lesson program is effective at helping children and adults learn to swim and, most importantly, be safe around water.
