Swim Lessons For All Ages

Adult Swim Lessons Available 

Swim lessons are for everyone, the young and the young at heart. At the YMCA, we welcome all people interested in learning to swim in taking our lessons. Our program supports adults who have historically been uncomfortable around bodies of water, by building gradual confidence in basic skills. From floating, paddling and breathing techniques to swim strokes, we strive to help you acclimate to the water in a safe environment.

Contact the Y to set up your individual or group lesson today.
