Preschool Swim Lessons

PRESCHOOL SWIM LESSONS (Ages 3-5)
This program is designed for children three to five.  This is a child’s first experience in the pool without parental assistance.  The children are taught the basic skills that are the building blocks of swimming.  Each child learns at their own level and it is common to repeat levels depending on their swimming skill progression. Children learn water safety skills as well as swimming skills in all levels. If unsure of the level your child should be placed at please contact the aquatics department.

Make-Up Policy: make-up lessons are only provided when the YMCA Aquatics Department cancels a swim lesson (ex. pool chemical imbalance, severe weather). The day/time of the make-up lesson will be communicated to parents by the Aquatics Coordinator.

 

No swim lesson participant will be placed on a roster UNTIL payment is received.  This includes participants using Financial Assistance (FA), discount coupons, etc. It is the participant’s responsibility to follow through if using FA or coupons. Priority will be given to those participants who have paid, no spots will be held for those who have not paid. All registrations that are unpaid by the first day of lessons will be deleted.

SWIM BASICS (Ages 3-12)

Swim Basics are introductory classes divided into three progressive stages that include the foundations of water safety and basic swimming skills, focusing on swimming to safety.


STAGE 1: WATER ACCLIMATION CLASS

The water acclimation class introduces swimmers to the pool and helps them develop safe water habits in a fun and encouraging environment. In water acclimation, children develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage lays the foundation that allows for the child's future progress in swimming. 
 
STAGE 2: WATER MOVEMENT CLASS

In this class, children are taught skills that focus on body position and control, directional change and forward movement in the water while also reinforcing how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.
 
STAGE 3: WATER STAMINA CLASS

In this class, children focus on swimming longer distances and are introduced to rotary breathing and integrated arm and leg action. In the event of falling into a body of water, children learn how to swim to safety.

Parent/Tot Swim Lessons

Swim Starters (Ages 6 months-3 years)
For Children under the age of 3, the Swim Starters Program teaches parent's and caregivers how to help develop aquatic readiness. The program develops a high comfort level for the child in water and teaches parents about water safety and drowning prevention. This program does not teach children how to survive in water or become accomplished swimmers. Instead, it develops a foundation of aquatic skills through fun and confidence- building experiences. Through this program, parents and caregivers will learn how to supervise children in the water, prevent accidents and plan for emergencies.
