Upcoming Session

Fall Programs begin October 29 - December 15, 2018 registration opens October 8th. 


Review these tips for what to expect, what to wear and what to bring to YMCA Swim Lessons:

  • Bring photo ID when you visit the Y
  • You don’t need to be a member of the Y to take swimming lessons, but members receive a discount on lessons and classes
  • Clothes, street shoes, diaper bags and other personal items can be stored in the locker rooms; bring your own lock and leave your valuables at home
  • Plan to arrive with enough time to change into swimming attire
  • Come to class dressed and ready for the pool:
    • A family-appropriate and clean swimsuit is required for all class and lesson participants.
    • Tight-fitting rubber or plastic pants are required for children who are not yet potty-trained.
    • Those who chill easily may benefit from a swim shirt.
    • Sandals or flip-flops are permitted in the pool area—street shoes are not.
    • Goggles are permitted in the pool—masks and snorkels are not (unless otherwise noted)
    • Towels are permitted in the pool area
  • All class and lesson participants must shower with soap before entering the pool.
  • Using the restroom is encouraged before entering the pool
  • All pools are heated
  • The Y is committed to keeping class and lesson sizes small so swimmers get the expert, personal attention they need to succeed
  • If you or your child has a fear of water, or had a bad experience with water, arrive at your class or lesson a little early to inform the instructor
  • Parents of children age six years and under must remain in the pool area during lessons
  • The pool might be available to Y members before or after lessons for open swimming—check the pool schedule

Accommodation Process

The Y considers the individual needs of every person and the ability of the program to meet those needs. Please inform the Y during the enrollment process if you or a family member requires any special accommodation. This information enables the Y to better meet your needs or those of a family member, within available resources and to the extent reasonable. All staff that will be working with you or a family member with special needs will be informed of how to care for or meet those needs.
