Beginning with the fall of 2017, our Y now offers the enhanced National YMCA Swim Lessons Curriculum to help ensure that every child has the tools he or she needs to be confident in and around the water. These student-centered lessons offer a heightened emphasis on water safety, while taking a progressive approach to building confidence, skills, and stamina.

At a high level, the curriculum is organized into three general categories:

  • Swim Starters (Infant/Toddler 6-36 months)
  • Swim Basics (Preschool & Youth)
  • Swim Strokes (Youth)

To learn more and register, go to our Swim Lessons page.

Once students have progressed through the stages in all three categories, they can continue to pursue their interest in swimming through our Competitive Swim Programs as part of our Tsunami Swim Team or Synchronettes Synchronized Swim Team.
