The YMCA has been teaching people to swim for more than 150 years, at Greenfield we continue that legacy with summer swim lessons. From private/semi-private to parent/child and school aged group lessons, we will get you ready to enjoy the water.
After purchasing sessions, please contact 720 870 2221 to schedule your lessons after May 25, 2015. For semi-private lessons both children need to be at the same swimming skill level. REGISTER HERE
