The World is 71% Water. Your Child is 100% Curious.


Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity.

The Y’s new Progressive Swim Lesson program helps children learn essential water safety skills, allowing them to satisfy their curiosity safely. Arranged by progressive stages, children are placed in lessons according to their skill and age. Within the levels, swimmers will learn skills such as personal safety, breath control and other fundamental swimming skills they may use throughout their lifetime.
