Knowing how to swim can save your life — or even someone else’s. Taught by certified YMCA instructors, our swimming lessons will give you lifelong skills to help you be safe in and around the water. But there’s more to YMCA swim lessons than just learning to swim. We want children to build confidence in the water, meet new people, and hopefully develop a lifelong passion for swimming!


Explore our swim lessons to find the program that’s right for your child.


At the Y, we also offer Adult Lessons. Improve on your swimming at every age!

Swimming Lesson Rolling Registration
Our program is unique in that we offer parents the convenience of registering just once for their child's swim lesson.
How do I sign up as a new member?
You can register at any time for lessons.
What is Rolling Registration?
As your child progresses through the YMCA Swim program (moving from one level to the next), the Aquatic Supervisor and staff will automatically move your child into the appropriate class.
If a class that your child should be moving to isn't available in your chosen time/day, the Aquatic Supervisor will contact you to help find another available class to suit your schedule. There is no need to re-register each season. This will be done automatically for you.
What happens the first week of lessons?
As a number of our instructor schedules change from one session to the next, we treat the first week of each new season (Sept-Dec; Jan-Mar; Mar-June; July-Aug) as the first week of lessons. Your child can meet their instructor at their level. The instructor will introduce themselves and the children to each other.
