The Y’s new swim lesson progression curriculum is designed to help participants reach their goals and provide a clear progression track. Our swim lessons are specifically tailored to the participant’s age, swimming ability, level of physical development and confidence in the water. Participants will progress to the next stage based on swim evaluations. It is not uncommon for participants to remain in the same stage for multiple sessions while they develop all the skills necessary to advance.
YMCA Swim lessons help adults, kids and families learn an important life skill and supports them in gaining the knowledge, ability and stamina to become strong and confident swimmers. Our program uses skill-based instruction through activities, maximizes physical activity, emphasizes safety, elevates character and engages families.
