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.

DETERMINING SWIM LEVEL READINESS

 

MAKE-UP/REFUND POLICY

Swim lesson participants register for classes on specific dates and times. Attendance in scheduled classes is the responsibility of the participant. We cannot provide makeup classes or allow the participants to attend a different class, unless the YMCA cancels a class and provides for a makeup. No refunds for classes missed.

 

INCLEMENT WEATHER PROGRAM MAKE-UPS

Please check the following locations for changes to our facility and program schedules. Check the Red banner at the top of every page on our website. If there is no red banner, there are no changes.  Check the Family Y Social Media Facebook and Instagram. Check the outgoing voice message at the Westport  Weston Family YMCA 203-226-8981.

Currently, we are not able to offer make ups for classes that are cancelled due to inclement weather because of limited space availability. ​No refunds or credits for weather cancellations.

 

Private Swim Lessons

Group swim lessons are not for everyone. Whether your child learns better in a one-on-one environment or you prefer the convenience of planning their lessons around a busy schedule, we can accommodate you. We are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our swimmers and staff. Since our children are not yet vaccinated, masks are to be worn around the warm pool. Masks may be removed before entering the pool. Instructors will be wearing a face shields at all times.

ALL PRIVATE SWIM LESSON REQUESTS must be made through the form below. You will be contacted by Josephine Rojas, Aquatics Director, once she has matched you with an available instructor.
