Adult Swim Lessons at the YMCA

Adults need swim lessons too! If you do not feel confident around water to save yourself or watch a child, sign up for swim lessons at the Y! Adult lessons follow the swim lesson structure as with our younger students. Our instructors use a clear progression track based upon age and ability, helping participants to build confidence to reach swimming skill milestones. All lessons emphasize personal safety around water.

Here’s how the new structure benefits you and your family:

  • Lessons are designed for students of all ages and abilities
  • Students receive personalized attention by highly-trained instructors
  • Small group setting allows us to communicate progress effectively

For one-on-one swim lessons, we also offer Private Swim Lessons.

Instruction is offered in 4 stages:

Stage 1 Water Acclimation: Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water in stage 1. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student?s future progress in swimming.

Stage 2 Water Movement: Stage 2 Water Movement. In stage 2, students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water while also continuing go practice how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

Stage 3 Water Stamina: In stage 3, students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.

Stage 4 Stroke Introduction: Students in stage 4 develop stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and learn the breaststroke kick and butterfly kick. Water safety is reinforced through treading water and elementary backstroke.
