Swim Lessons | 6-12 yrs

The Y’s Swim Lessons help develop competency in swimming along with confidence in and around the water. A student is advanced to the next level only when he or she can proficiently and safely perform the sills within the current level. We expect participants to learn and progress at their own rate. Some levels require repeating several times before they are ready to advance. At the end of each session your instructor will provide a report letting you know which class level to sign up for next. Swim Lesson Guidelines for Bands.
