Teaching people to swim for more than a century, the Attleboro Y offers aquatics programs for people of all ages and abilities. Children learn to be safe around water and they feel the sense of accomplishment that comes with learning something new. At the same time, adults maintain their fitness through the lifetime sport of swimming or by participating in the Y’s water fitness programs.

Swim Lessons at the Norton Outdoor Center

This summer, our Aquatics Staff will offer swim lessons for Attleboro Y Members in our beautiful outdoor pool at the Norton Outdoor Center!

Due to the current public health requirements, we will have to run lessons a bit differently to promote social distancing. For beginning swimmers who need in-the-water instruction, we invite you to arrange private or family lessons with our Aquatics Director. For more independent swimmers, we’re offering more traditional swim lessons with a maximum number of 4 participants and the instructor teaching from the deck.

Unsure which type of lesson is right for your child? Please contact our Aquatics Director Kelly Mahoney at kmahoney@attleboroymca.org.


Ages 5 and older. If your child can take swim lessons independently with an instructor teaching from the deck, we invite you to send them up for our 4-class sessions of lessons. You can either sign up for one-week sessions with lessons taught in 4 consecutive days or for a weekly Saturday lesson.

All ages. For young swimmers who require in-the-water instruction, our swim instructors can work with your children one-on-one or in small groups of children from the same household. To arrange for a private or family lesson, please contact our Aquatics Director Kelly Mahoney at kmahoney@attleboroymca.org to arrange a class time and personalized lesson plan.
