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 3 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!

 

 

 

 

Safety Around Water*

The world is 71% water. Your children are 100% curious. 

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or caregiver, you can’t keep your kids sidelined. You need to equip your children with the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help you make sure they learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them.

Safety Around Water is FREE to participants. It is open to anyone in the community who wants their children to learn how to be safe in and around water. 

What is Safety Around Water?

This 2-week course teaches kids water safety and basic swimming skills that help reduce the risk of drowning and builds confidence in and around water. A typical session includes:

  • Exercises to help kids adjust to being in water
  • Instruction in “Jump, Push, Turn, Grab” and “Swim, Float, Swim,” two skill sets kids can use if the unexpectedly find themselves in the water.
  • Specific safety topics like what to do if you see someone in the water who needs help.
  • Fun activities that reinforce skills
