Aquatics for Kids at the Y

Our swim lesson program is designed to help kids develop a lifelong love of the water with competency, confidence and endurance.

To reach this goal, students are introduced to:

    •  Stroke Mechanics 
    •  Water Sports and Games        
    •  Personal Safety
    •  Character Development

 


PROGRESSIVE LESSONS (6-13 Years)

Our youth/teen lesson program develops basic swimming skills while advancing through 7 progressive levels, beginning with Polliwog.  As children develop their strength, coordination and endurance they are able to master the skill goal associated with each level and are prepared to move on to the next.  Not sure where your child fits in?  See lesson placement information below.
