Parent/Child Group Swim Lessons
Accompanied by a parent/caregiver in the water, 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.
During these lessons, while the swim lessons instructor will be going over various swimming skills, the overall goal of these lessons is to acclimate the child to the water, not to have them swimming on their own.
In the event that the YMCA closes due to weather, or the Aquatics department cancels a lesson, your YMCA account will be credited the amount of the missed lesson, which can be used on future YMCA programming. In the event that a lesson is missed due to participant’s sickness, a doctor’s note must be sent to the Director of Aquatics in order to qualify for a credit to be applied to your YMCA account. There will be no make-up swim lessons, regardless if they were cancelled or missed. All refund and credit requests can only be approved by the Director of Aquatics.
In the event that the participant must withdraw from the swim lesson, please see the applicable dates in order to receive a credit or refund.
- Before the program start date: 100% credit or refund.
- On or after the first day of the program: 75% credit or refund.
- On or after the second day of a program: 0% credit or refund.
