GROUP YOUTH SWIM LESSONS
Have your child gain confidence in the pool with our monthly swim lessons. Teaching your child to swim can have significant benefits for both their health and safety! Children who participate in swim lessons are 88% less likely to drown. Swim lessons help children build confidence and social skills, improve motor development, and accelerate cognitive development. Our youth swim lessons are for children 3 years (must be potty trained) and up. Each skill level builds the preceding level and all classes cover the different strokes and safety skills. Lessons give instructional assistance in the different swimming strokes, safety around water, character development and confidence.
Each lesson being 40 minutes in length. Make-up lessons will only be offered due to a YMCA cancellation or closure.

Gain confidence with every stroke with our one-on-one private swim lessons. Private lessons give you the flexibility to work with our instructor to create a schedule that best fits your needs. Private swim lessons go beyond the group lessons setting and give you the one-on-one interaction with our instructor. These lessons are designed for both swimmers and non swimmers of any age and of any swim ability. We can work to build confidence in the water or to develop stroke technique. You will be able to meet with your instructor before you start your lessons to go over your personal goals and we will set up a plan to help you best meet those goals.

Make every lap count this coming Summer with the Switzerland County YMCA Sharks swim team. Swimming is a sport that individuals can excel in personally while still participating in a fun team environment. The Shark swim team is a youth competitive swim team.

Swim meets are typically on Saturdays.
In order to be apart of the sharks swim team participants must be comfortable swimming the full length of the pool. Swimmers will be responsible for their own goggles, towel, and practice suits. Team suits will be an additional fee and must be paid before the suits are ordered.
