Swim Lessons - Pre-School (Ages 3-5)

Swim Lessons - Pre-School (Ages 3-5)

Swim lessons at the YMCA provide important life skills that could save a life, and provide benefits for a lifetime. Instructors are highly trained in our nationally recognized swim lesson curriculum. Lessons are held in the swimming pool.

Swimmers will learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

  • Swim, float, swim— sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit
  • Jump, push, turn, grab

Goggles are recommended for all stages

Children with a tendency to run and leave the class will need a parent standing by to bring the child back. Additionally, children who do not listen to the instructor’s commands or refuse to participate, will need a parent nearby to reinforce the child to listen and participate.

Parents must remain in the pool area during the swim lessons.

Please click “Register” for the day and time in the month you want to start classes.  This program is drafted monthly, until you cancel.  To cancel, please submit a completed Program Cancelation Form at least 7 days prior to the 1st of the month.  If you do not follow this procedure, the Y will not be held responsible for money drafted – no refunds will be given.
