Did you know the Y owns and operates more swimming pools than any other organization in the country?

THE Y IS AMERICA’S SWIM INSTRUCTOR NOT BECAUSE WE TEACH TECHNICAL SKILLS BUT BECAUSE WE REALIZE THAT SWIMMING AND WATER SAFETY PROGRAMS PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH MUCH MORE THAN THAT.

HOW OUR APPROACH DIFFERS


Tested curricula, grounded in research, combined with our brand promise to strengthen community differentiate our swimming and water safety programs from those of other organizations.

USES SKILL-BASED INSTRUCTION

In skill-based instruction, a large portion of instructional time is dedicated to teaching students fundamental swimming skills. It is about teaching, practicing, and assessing these fundamental skills in multiple ways and through multiple activities. Instructors set customized expectations for students based on their ability, facilitate skill practice in multiple ways, and support students based on where they are so that they can be.

INDIVIDUAL &
GROUP
SWIM LESSONS
We offer swimming lessons for both adults and children, which is perfect if you prefer individual or small group instructor attention. Maybe you started learning to swim as a child, but never quite mastered it? Maybe you’re afraid of the water? Maybe your child is a little nervous about learning to swim, so you’d like to ensure they have special attention in a one-on-one or small group environment? Whatever the reason, we’re here to help you learn to swim confidently, with a certified and supportive instructor, so you can enjoy the beautiful bodies of water in our communities – whether it’s a pool, lake, or ocean.
Come in to the Wellness Center today to fill out your swim lesson request form and one of our Certified Swim Instructors will get back with you and set up your lessons.
