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 YMCA’s New Progressive Swim Program can help you make sure they learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely. The Y’s NEW swim lessons are arranged by progressive stages and 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 to use throughout their lifetime.
