Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors that makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
Youth Swim Lessons
Safe swimming skills are something everyone should know at any age. Participants will learn to adjust to the water and to develop proficiency in the pool. For those more comfortable in the water, stroke development and endurance are the focus. Water safety is emphasized with all participants who will be divided by age and skill level.
