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.

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.
