Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. The Downtown YMCA and Jamerson Family YMCA offer swim lessons for all ages and abilities. Group lessons run continuously throughout the year. Click below for more information. 


Not sure where to begin? That's okay, we've got you! View our swim assessment section to discover which level is the best fit for you or your child. Each student is placed in the appropriate level based on age and swimmer's ability. Final placement will be determined by the Swim School Coordinator.


Register online or in person at any of our three convenient locations. Need to know which level is appropriate for your swimmer? View the swim assessment prior to registering. Those seeking to apply for financial assistance should email the Swim School Coordinator here for an aid package.
