UNDERSTANDING YMCA SWIM LESSON STAGES

The National YMCA swim lesson program is designed to teach safety, confidence and strength in the water in a supportive and nurturing environment.  The program is organized into 3 main age categories and then the student will be assigned a stage based on their skill level.

Answer these questions about your child’s skill level to understand which stage the instructor may have assigned to your child.
