Youth Swim Lessons
The Youth YMCA Swim Lessons Program is divided into two divisions and six levels.

Level included are: Level 1 Water Acclimation, Level 2 Water Movement and Level 3 Water Stamina. The next division is Swim Strokes. After mastering the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease and foster a lifetime of physical activity.
