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!




YMCA Swim School takes a customized and personalized approach to private swim lessons. Goals are established on the first lesson by the parent and instructor so that the instructor can tailor the lesson plan to meet those goals. From water safety, to learning the strokes, to getting a workout in, YMCA Swim School Private Lessons can accommodate all.
