YMCA SWIM PROGRAM INFORMATION

Swim Starters

Parent and Child: Develop water enrichment and aquatic readiness in children ages six months to three years. This category focuses on developing swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences. Parents also learn to supervise children in the water, prevent accidents, and plan for emergencies.

Safety Around Water

The curriculum for Safety Around Water is made up of Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced stages. The primary focus of the program is helping all students achieve the benchmark skills taught in the Intermediate stage. The Beginner and Advanced stages exist to meet students where they are.

Swim Basics & Strokes

Siouxland YMCA Swimming Programs teach water safety and swimming skills for all ages. Swimmers gain comfort and confidence through safe habits and underwater exploration. For older students, we refine stroke techniques and advanced safety skills, promoting well-being and a lifetime of physical activity. Join us for Stages 1-6!
