Swim Lessons for Youth and Adults

The purpose of the YMCA Youth and adult Aquatics Program is to help participants learn Safety Around Water, lay a good foundation of basic aquatic skill, with the hope this leads them to develop a lifelong appreciation for aquatic activities.



Adaptive Swim Lessons

Open to children with intellectual and/or physical impairments, we emphasize each child’s abilities and design a group lesson based on Safety Around Water, basic swim skills and the Y’s core values. Focusing on the development of physical and social skills, these classes are an opportunity for your child to maintain and increase physical fitness, socialize with peers and achieve success.

Private Lessons

The Y offers private and semi-private lessons to further accommodate those looking to enhance their aquatic abilities; ranging from the most basic learn-to-swim skills to more advanced technical work. For more information please contact us at 508-362-6500 ext. 1242
