YMCA swim lesson levels are determined by age and ability of the participant. Children  who are new swimmers will be placed in our beginning swim level classes. If you believe your child should be placed in a higher level or you’ve been away from the Y for more than 6 months, he or she must take a swim test. The following swim stage descriptions and lesson selector will help you in determining the best fit for your child. Once you have identified the best level for your child, you can register them in lessons by age.




Our front-desk staff is available to answer any questions about the swim lessons program.

My son enjoys his swim lessons.  It’s amazing to see how far he has come.  The swim staff is amazing.
