The Y has been teaching people to swim for more than a century. Learning to swim at the Y is more than just stroke development. It is a child-centered approach, where kids learn through play, hands-on exercises, and creative repetition. Children are taught in small groups in a progressive approach that allows each child to proceed at their own pace. When your child has mastered one level, they are ready for the next. Each lesson encourages your child to feel good about themselves and what they have learned.
The swim lessons and swim classes offered by the YMCA of Greater Rochester Aquatics Programs include parent-child and preschool classes, and swimming lessons for all ages and abilities. We also offer youth competitive swim team programs, as well as lifeguard, swim instructor, First Aid, and CPR training.
