Swim Lessons at the Y

Swimming is an important life skill, great exercise and a challenging sport. Our Jim & Heather Gills YMCA offers swim lessons for all ages!

Water Acclimation

For ages 6 months - 3 years | Children progress from water-adjustment activities through basic water skills. Program instruction is directed toward helping parents work with their children. One adult must accompany each child.


For ages 3 - 5 years | This class introduces children to their first experience swimming without a parent. It is a great way for kids to learn how to be independent and have fun in the pool with a trained swim instructor. Children learn at their own pace moving through our four skill levels.


For ages 6 - 12 years | This class consists of four levels, which focus on stroke development, water safety, personal growth, and fun. A trained swim instructor works with children to help build self-esteem as well as self confidence through swimming.


For ages 13 & up | This class is for any adult from beginner through advanced. A trained swim instructor works with you moving at your own pace, learning basic stroke development, and water safety.
