Instructional Swim Lessons

Nationally, the YMCA is the leader of teaching the sport of swimming!

SAFETY AROUND WATER-(SAW) emphasizes life saving techniques as part of the instruction along with the development of the 4 competitive swim strokes.

Our Program features progressive, lifelong opportunities to get into the swim of things! Caring, professional, certified instructors make it happen. Class sizes are limited in number to ensure safety and optimal instruction. New swim students are required to be evaluated prior to registration.

We are infusing safety with friendship and comfort in the water.
