Adult Group Swimming Lessons

The YMCA has been teaching children critical swimming skills for decades and we're proud to offer a range of classes for swimmers of all ages and abilities. Our aquatics staff is dedicated to offering exciting, safe and confidence building classes for adults and teens of all ages and swimming abilities. It is never too late to learn this criticial life-saving skill.

Group swimming lessons typically operate on 8 week cycles and can range in class sizes of 6 to 10 students. If a swimmer has some experience in the water, we typically ask that they take a swim evaluation with one of our instructors before placement into a class. Otherwise new swimmers can sign up for lessons at our front desk or through our online registration page. We also offer private swimming lessons for students who are looking for a more flexible schedule or who would like more one-on-one instruction.
