Adult Swim Lessons: 13 Years and Up

The YMCA Swim Lesson Curriculum is a core group of aquatic skills every person needs to be safe around water. As the foundation of our program, these skills allow students to learn proper swim stroke techniques. Students begin with and build upon skills, helping them to celebrate their successes, build self-confidence, and enjoy learning to swim and water safety.
