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.
