Make A Splash
Have fun, learn new skills and build confidence that lasts a lifetime! Here at the Y, our aquatics staff is dedicated to offering exciting, safe and confidence building classes for children age 6 months – 18 years. When your child participates in one of our swimming programs, they will learn to be safe and feel that sense of accomplishment that comes with mastering a new skill.

Our swimming program is the Y’s third most widely offered youth program nationwide. We use a problem-solving, guided-discovery teaching approach in a positive, caring environment. Kids develop lifelong skills that help to maintain overall health.

All of our swim instructors are:
Certified in CPR from the American Red Cross
Certified in First Aid from the American Red Cross
Certified as a Y Swim Lesson Instructor (from the Y) and/or a Water Safety Instructor (from the American Red Cross) or are working toward one of the above two instructor certifications

We employ only the best staff, all of whom exhibit our values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility—and who are passionate about teaching children the life skill of swimming.

PARENT & TOT

Ages: 6 months-3 year
Class ratio 1:12
We introduce kids to the water through group activities and games, while a parent accompanies them in the water. Skills are introduced at the child’s development level and build on each other as the child progresses. Basic skills are taught through songs and fun games. All children must wear a swim diaper under their swimsuit.
