Aquatics Contacts


America's swim instructor. That is how the Y is recognized for its pioneering work in the field of swimming. Home to the world's first filtered pool, and more importantly, the first group Swim Lessons, the Y has a long history and excellent reputation of teaching people how to swim.

Participants are grouped together based on their age and ability level.  The Y offers both group lessons and private lessons.


Parent/Child (6-36 months)
This fun, water orientation class is designed for children 6-36 months. Parents are taught helpful ways to practice movements in the water with their children along with safety information and activities for development.

Preschool (ages 3-5)
The preschool classes offer progressive swim lessons. The lessons start with basic swimming skills and work toward the development of breath control and longer distance swimming.

Youth (ages 6-14)
Participants are divided into six levels of skill progression while developing greater swimming ability.

Participants are grouped with peers of similar ability while working on improving their swimming skills.
