Y SWIM PROGRAM INFORMATION
There are three general categories of Y Swim Lessons:

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.
Swim Basics/Safety Around the Water

Swimmers develop a high level of comfort in the water by practicing safe water habits, engaging in underwater exploration, and learning how to swim to safety and exit if they fall into a body of water.
