SUMMER 2017 SWIM LESSONS

(Ages 6 Months to 12 Years)

Make a splash with Y Summer Swim Lessons. Learning to swim teaches skills to be safe in the water and so much more. Swimming builds self confidence, develops self-esteem and makes water a safe, fun environment for a lifetime. We are focused on teaching lifesaving skills and developing a generation of strong swimmers and confident kids.

During the summer, we offer both morning and evening lessons: 

Tuesday & Thursday Morning Swim Sessions
Monday - Thursday Evening Swim Sessions

Scheduling and prices are below. Registration Opens: Thursday, April 27 for all Summer Swim Lessons.
