Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons at the YMCA are a wonderful way to get your kids engaged in an activity that will serve them for years to come. Whether your child is a beginner or ready to tackle more advanced stroke techniques, we have something for everyone.

Our instructors all work from the same curriculum to help with consistency between lessons. Using the same ‘language’, we are able to effectively communicate water safety strategies as well as important swim skill instruction.

Please note: Safety Around Water is intended for the 3-5 year old age group, and levels 1-6 are for the 6+ age group.

Check out the many offerings below and feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

A/B (Water Discovery & Exploration)

Tillamook
5/8/24 - 6/26/24
VIEW

This class is interactive and social and designed to give the parent tools to help acclimate children 6 months to 3 years to the water.

Parents accompany children in the water, which introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment through exploration and encourages them to enjoy themselves while learning about the water.

Using tools like songs and floating toys, your child will gain comfort in the water while starting to build some basic understanding of the language used in all our swim lessons to set them up for success in later years.
