Our swim lessons allow people of all ages to become safe and confident in the water in a fun and supportive environment. Certified instructors work with students of all ages to help them master fundamental skills so they can advance to the next level of lessons.

For our youngest students—age 6 months to 3 years—we offer Water Discovery classes that are free with a family membership. In these classes, parents help their children learn to enjoy the water in preparation for preschool lessons later on.

Develop skills that provide lifelong benefits by enrolling in swim lessons at the Y!
