No Cost Youth Swim Lessons!

Some youth are eligible for an 8 week swim lesson scholarship at no cost thanks to funding provided by the YMCA of the USA. Please read the attached application to see if your child qualifies. If so, bring your completed application to our Welcome Center!

Swim lessons are 8 weeks long and begin approximately every other month beginning in January.

Each eight week session costs $32 for members and $64 for potential members.

Swim Starters – Ages 6 months to 3 years; stages A-B (Formerly Parent/Child)

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision. Each child must have one parent or guardian present in the water for this Class.

Pre-School Swim Lessons – Ages 3-5 years; stages 1-4 

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

Swim, float, swim where swimmers learn a sequence to front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit

Jump, push, turn, grab where swimmers learn a sequence to jump into the water, push off the bottom of the pool, turn toward the edge of the pool, and grab the edge of the pool

Preschool swim classes are:

Swim Basics 1-2 – Water Acclimation (Beginner level, formerly called Pike)

Swim Basics 1 and 2 increases comfort with underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance and independently. The classes encourage forward movement in the water.

Swim Basics 3 – (Advanced Beginner Level, formerly called Eel/Ray)

Swim Basics 3 develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.

Swim Strokes 4 – (Intermediate Level, formerly called Starfish)

Swim Strokes 4 introduces basic stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and reinforces water safety through treading water and elementary backstroke.

Progressive School Age Swim Lessons -Ages 6-12 years; stages 1-6

Swim Basics 1-3 (Beginner, formerly called Pollywog/Guppy)

Swim Basics 1-3 helps participants feel comfortable in the water. Doggy paddle, with or without a bubble for support, flutter kick, front and back float, and rhythmic breathing are taught. Swimmers develop intermediate self-rescue skills.

Swim Strokes 4 (Advanced Beginner, formerly called Minnow)

Swim Strokes 4 introduces basic stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and reinforces water safety through treading water and elementary backstroke.
