Strong Swimmers = Confident Kids

CCCY Swim Lessons_social media_700x700 3The YMCA has a long history of teaching swim lessons. In fact, the Y is credited for being the first to develop a group swim instruction program in 1909.

We have come a long way since that first group lesson, and we’re excited to present the latest swim lesson upgrades to you and your family. Our new swim lesson curriculum is based on extensive research. It allows us to keep doing what we’ve been doing great yet build upon it to really make us the leading provider of aquatics in our community.

Our swim lesson curriculum has evolved to be a better fit for your child’s age, fitness level, aquatic level and experience. The fun fish names we previously used to identify the different lesson levels have been replaced with names that more closely relate to the skills we will be working on in each stage. In stages 1-3, our certified swim instructors facilitate activities that focus on building confidence in the water, instilling good water safety habits and personal growth.  In stages 4-6, instructors help swimmers build confidence in deep water as well as work on stroke techniques.  And swim stages A and B give our youngest swimmers, infants and toddlers, an opportunity to get comfortable in the water with a parent or guardian.

This exciting new curriculum helps each participant experience a sense of accomplishment after each lesson and build relationships with other swimmers in their class. We also look forward to seeing swimmers advance more quickly through the stages.
