Swim Lessons for Children & Teens
Swim lessons are specifically tailored to the child’s age, swimming ability, level of physical development and confidence in the water. The participant will advance in the program as they become more skilled in the water.
Swim lessons at the Y are participant-centered, emphasizing learning, not passing or failing. Each developmental level is divided into five components which include personal safety, personal growth, stroke development, water games and rescue. It is not uncommon for a child to repeat any given level.
If you are currently enrolled in a session, we encourage you to look up your child’s swim evaluation midway through the session.

for Current Program Registration
If you have questions about what level you should register your child please schedule a swim evaluation with us. We do evaluations Monday through Thursday between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm and on Friday or Saturday (limited availability). All evaluations are by appointment only. To schedule an evaluation for your child, please visit us at the Welcome Center Desk.
In addition to lessons, we recommend our family members enjoy Family Swim time (see pool schedule for hours) to increase your child’s comfort and ability in the water. Youth members can buy passes to participate as well.
There are no classes from April 3 - April 12 due to annual maintenance for the Hurst Pool. There are no classes on May 25 for Memorial Day.
