The Y’s new swim lesson progression curriculum is designed to help participants reach their goals and provide a clear progression track.

REGISTER swim buttonBenefits of this approach include:

  • Accommodating students of varying abilities and ages
  • Fostering a sense of achievement and self-confidence
  • Staying grounded in a skill continuum that allows students to move easily from one stage to the next with clearly defined stages of progress along the way. See detailed information on the new skills taught in each of the stages >>
  • Encouraging students to have fun and develop new friendships through group activities
  • Improving communication about student’s progress

Private Swim Lessons

Private swimming lessons are designed to give participants individualized attention in order to improve or master their swimming skills. Instructors, participants and/or parents work together to determine goals for the session and lessons are then customized in order to meet the established goals. Private Lessons are available to participants of all ages and can be scheduled any day of the week.
