Group Swim Lesson Flyer March 2022.jpg

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.  For more information and pricing, please contact the Front Desk.

Make every lap count 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, a member of the Kentucky-Indiana YMCA Swim Association (KIYSA), is a youth     competitive swim team.  Participants will have the opportunity to learn the rules of competitive swimming, build swimming skills, and increase endurance. Practices will be held three times a week throughout the season. The season runs through the middle of February. There will be a swim meet each month on Saturday mornings for the duration of the season. At the end of the second session there will be a championship meet against all eight KIYSA teams.
