Youth Swim


YOUTH SWIM

Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport.

We offer swim lessons for all ages, family swim, competitive swimming plus adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs. Our qualified swim instructors are certified in CPR, AED and First Aid.

The Y’s new swim lesson progression curriculum is designed to help participants reach their goals and provide a clear progression track.

Benefits of this approach include:

  • Accommodating students of varying abilities and ages
  • Fostering a sense of achievement and self-confidence
  • Staying grounded in a skill continuum that allows students to move easily from one stage to the next with clearly defined stages of progress along the way. See detailed information on the new skills taught in each of the stages >>
  • Encouraging students to have fun and develop new friendships through group activities
  • Improving communication about student’s progress

Students can register for one of eight stages under our three swim categories depending upon their age and current swim ability:
