My youngest just finished up swim lessons at the YMCA. I was unsure of how he’d do in swim lessons but ended up signing up for two sessions in a row as my little boy turns out to be a great big fish! He did great in the pool and I’m happy to see him on the road to water safety.
1) The YMCA small pool is kept at a wonderfully warm temperature - perfect for young children.
2) Classes are typically offered twice a week for 5 weeks, or once a week for 10. Special summer programs also offer intense two week weeks sessions. Options are available to fit almost anyone’s schedule.
3) The YMCA offers a very good Parent/Child class, so if your little guy or gal isn’t ready for formal swim classes this option makes for a great transition class.
4) A good teacher is worth their weight in gold.
Some of our Y favorites: Krista, Amra & Erica.
