Youth Swim Lessons
Youth Swim Lessons

Learning to swim offers much more than safety in the water. It builds self-confidence, develops self-esteem and makes water a safe, fun environment for a lifetime! Year-round swim lessons are offered at our Centennial Hills and SkyView Y locations. Summer swim lessons are offered at each of our four branches beginning June 4 and continuing to September. The YMCA’s four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are incorporated into every program.

Swim Lesson Descriptions

Please register your child for the class you feel is most suitable based on the description below. On the first day, our instructors will assess your child's swim level during the lesson and recommend a switch if needed. This typically won't disrupt your schedule . . . your child will likely just join a class on the other side of the pool!

Parent Child Swim Lesson (6 months – 3 years)
Little ones get an introduction to the water in a nurturing environment. Our instructors guide parents through teaching basic water safety and skills with songs and games. It's a great first experience! (One adult must accompany each child. A swim diaper is required and can be purchases at the front desk.)


Preschool Swim Lessons (3 – 5 years)
Children are grouped by ability level and taught personal safety, independent swimming and floating skills. Our instructors build swimmers’ confidence while enabling them to grow independently in the water. Each class is 30 minutes. Class descriptions follow.


Youth Swim Lessons (6 – 12 years)
Swimmers are grouped by ability and receive an introduction to all of the strokes. Programs focus on personal growth, safety, rescue skills, diving and water games. Each class is 45 minutes. Class descriptions follow.


Teen/Adult Swim Lessons (13+ years)
If you have little or no aquatic experience, take this opportunity to develop new lifelong skills or improve your current abilities. Our separate teen and adult classes offer supportive lessons designed to build confidence while you learn.
