At the Attleboro Y, we understand that swim lessons are more than just stroke development. As they learn to swim, children also develop endurance, self-confidence, and an appreciation for water safety. The Y staff works hard to create an encouraging atmosphere in the water, where each swimmer can learn and progress at his or her own rate and comfort level.

Swim Basics

Recommended Age Ranges: Preschool (3–5 yrs.), School-Age Youth (6–12 yrs.)

In these three stages, students develop a high level of comfort in the water by practicing safe water habits, engaging in underwater exploration, and learning how to swim to safety and exit if they fall into a body of water. Group activities that reinforce learning help students progress. By the end of this series of stages, students achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills – “swim, float, swim” and “jump, push, turn, grab.”

Stage 1 – Water Acclimation

Stage 2 – Water Movement

Stage 3 – Water Stamina

> Schedules, Fees, and Online Registration


Swim Strokes

Recommended Age Ranges: School-Age Youth (6–12 yrs.), Teens & Adults (12+ yrs.)

In these three stages, having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills. Swimmers also build stroke technique for all competitive strokes, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

Stage 4 – Stroke Introduction

Stage 5 – Stroke Development
