For over 150 years, the YMCA has been teaching communities to swim and be safe around water. This summer we continue that legacy offering swim lessons for preschoolers, school-aged kids and private and semi private.
Preschool Swim Lessons (ages 3-5)
Eel - Beginner - Ages 3-5
Children should already be able to perform: front and back float for 10 seconds; paddle on front, back, and side for 10 yards with a float belt and 5 feet without a float belt. Eel is designed for the intermediate preschool swimmer. Participants will begin to learn the basic techniques for freestyle, as well as, front and back floating, basic backstroke, building endurance, and pool safety.
Ray - Advanced Beginner - Ages 3-5
Children should already be able to: jump in without assistance, alternating paddle on front/back/side (25 yards with float belt, 20 feet without float belt), front and back float 20 seconds without float belt.
