The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. But our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty aquatics programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports.
Minimum of three participants required to run a class.
Mommy and Me is a water adjustment class for the parent and child. We focus on water acclimation and fun activities to teach the fundamentals of swimming.
Skills that are being taught in each class have many similar characteristic but to make these skills second nature they need to be practiced often to create muscle memory. Each class will have different challenges that the swimmer will face, going from swimming with assistance to a minimal amount to no assistance. Although your swimmer will be taught for 45 minutes, they need to practice all year round to receive the benefits of classes being taught.
Ages will not determine the class that the swimmer will be placed in, their ability will! The first week is a swim test and we will test the child and place them in the appropriate class.
This class will cover bobs, floats, jumping in with assistance, freestyle stroke, games and using equipment such as noodles and kickboards.
This class will cover the strokes more in depth and focus on strengthening them. Very minimal assistance is used in these lessons, primarily only when introducing a new stroke.
Improve Strokes and Confidence in a smaller setting with a qualified instructor! Private (one-on-one) as well as semi-private (two- to one) lessons are available for all ages/skill levels. Lessons are 30 minutes or 1 hour in length, scheduled at your convenience, with an experienced and knowledgeable instructor. These classes are available for all ages!
