Our lessons develop aquatic readiness, engage in underwater exploration, and teach children important water safety skills. We offer warm water options, year-round lessons, certified instructors, and more!
The YMCA provides swimming lessons to swimmers of all ages and skill levels, from infants to adults! We also offer private lessons, semi-private lessons, and adaptive lessons for swimmers with special needs.

Family Wellness Swim School takes pride in our exciting water-safe program, where each child progresses at their own pace. Through positive reinforcement, practice and patience, students learn water-safe swimming skills while having fun.
Lessons are offered for everyone ages 6 months through adulthood. Classes are structured by age and ability to accommodate varying skill levels within each age group. Student to teacher ratios are 4:1 except for Parent/Baby and Parent/Child classes which are 6:1. Private lessons are available for each session and are a good option for those who want or may need more one-on-one attention.
