Swim Lessons: Youth

Youth swim lessons are a child alone class for ages 6 - 14 years. Each level of swim lessons builds upon the preceding level. Children will progress through lessons at their own rate, and it is important to understand that children will not pass or fail a level, however they will move up when the instructor feels that they are ready. Choose a day and time from the options below and your child will attend that day and time for the 7-week session.

Stroke Development Program

Stroke Development is designed for children ages 5 - 18 years of age that swim without a floatation device and are looking to fine tune the 4 main swim strokes.

Stroke Development is taught by one of the Y’s Swim Team Coaches and focuses on freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and the butterfly. Throughout the 7-week session, children will swim the full length of the pool while focusing on a different stroke each week.

In addition to the 4 main strokes, children will work on flip turns, starts and finishes. This class is a great transition into the Spring Swim Team Program.

Members/Nonmembers: $70/$100
Tuesday 6:17 - 7:00 PM
