Youth Group Swim Lessons

Youth Group Swim Lessons

Through Youth Group Swim Lessons Stages 1, 2, and 3, students will learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

  • swim, float, swim – sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit
  • jump, push, turn, grab

Through Youth Group Swim Lessons Stages 4, 5, and 6, students having mastered the fundamentals will learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, develop skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

This program is for ages 6-12.


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.
