The YMCA Cape Cod offers a wide range of swim programs for the whole family, including learn to swim classes starting with infants through to adults, aquafit, exercise classes, swim team and of course open swim & lap swim times.

Come swim and grow at the Y and be inspired and empowered!  Swimming builds self-confidence and develops the whole person – spirit, mind, and body.


Swim Lessons for Youth and Adults

The Y introduced the country to group swim lessons over 110 years ago in 1909. 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, prevent accidents, build confidence with the hope this leads to the development of lifelong appreciation for aquatic activities.

Before Class Checklist:

  • Please arrive on time, dressed in a swim suit and ready to swim.
  • Please bring your towel, goggles, swim caps and water.

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.


We offer both traditional certification courses as well as Blended Learning web-based/in-classroom style courses. Blended Learning combines online learning with in-person skills sessions conducted by a Red Cross certified instructor. The blended learning online sessions offer students a variety of elements to learn program content including videos, lesson narration and special interactive features. This allows for individualized, self-paced learning. Once the online session has been successfully completed, students practice skills and are assessed by the instructor during the in-person skills sessions.
