Swim Lessons


The Y provides children across the U.S. with access to swim lessons and water safety education. The Y introduced the country to group swim lessons over 110 years ago in 1909. Now, as one of the largest community-based organizations in the country, we teach more than a million children, especially those most at-risk of drowning, invaluable water safety and swimming skills each year.

Adult Swim Classes

 This supervised class will assist current lap swimmers in improving strokes, strength, and endurance to continue lap swimming with little rest. Great cardio-vascular improvement which will assist in all other sports, activities, and health.

      • NEW! Mermaid Swimming Classes

      Have loads of fun swimming with the Sea Serpent!!! Learn skills, tricks, bubble bending, and more in a structured class that will encourage, strengthen and challenge you to be all you can be. The class includes a safety segment, warmup, aquatic exercises, shallow and deeper water skills, breathing skills, underwater swimming, routines, games and more. The classes are progressive in skill building. A certified and enthusiastic instructor (mermaid) will swim right beside you. Register early to ensure a fin/tail arrives for your use before the first class.

Pool Closure Information:

The Lifeguards will close the pool if lightning is sighted and for any other situation the lifeguard deems unsafe.

The first time the participants are instructed to leave the pool for weather, classes will be cancelled or if there is room elsewhere in the building there will be a safety lecture.

This is part of the curriculum of the class and is something we can do inside and out of the pool.

The safety lecture will be different for every class and will include topics such as never going swimming alone, using lifejackets, or calling 911.

When the pool closes during the lessons, we will use the following:

    • 1st time – Safety Lecture or cancelled
    • 2nd time – We will make every effort to make-up the class
