YMCA SWIM SCHOOL
Welcome to the main page of the Bloomington-Normal YMCA Swim School!
Our USA Swimming approved Swim School is pioneering the way youth and adults learn to swim while ensuring the experience they have in and around the water is both safe and positive. We are taking a whole new approach to swim lessons by using a custom perpetual swim program that lets you or your children be the driver of progress.

There are 3 class goals in each level. Once the swimmer has met the requirements for their level, they move up to the next level starting in their next session! No more waiting 4-8 weeks for the session to be over. Progress is all up to the swimmer!
