Youth swim lessons are offered year-round for swimmers ages 6 - 12 of all skill levels. YMCA swim lessons emphasize water safety, skill and stroke development. Beginning swimmers are introduced to basic stroke movement and learn how to be more comfortable in the water.
Youth Swim Lessons As the Y invented the concept of group swim lessons, there is no organization more qualified to teach children aquatic safety. Now, the Y's new national Swim Lessons program ensures the same high-quality experience at every YMCA throughout the country.
We were the first organization to offer organized swim lessons and began group lessons in 1907 at the Detroit YMCA by George Corsan. At the Y, children become safe and confident in the water, learning to swim in a positive, fun manner that builds lifelong skills.
YMCA swim lessons build self-esteem, confidence and fitness. Experienced instructors offer group and private swim lessons for all ages and abilities at Bridgewater, Hillsborough, Somerset Hills and Somerville YMCAs. Swim lessons are offered year-round. You will find an online registration button with each class description below.
