YMCA Swim LessonsAt the Y, we believe swimming is a critical life skill for every child andteen. We use a variety of fun methods to help kids overcome fears, buildconfidence in the water and develop skills that last a lifetime. Our qualifiedinstructors are trained in the philosophies and disciplines set by YMCACanada. We’ve been national leaders in swim lessons for more than100 years.YMCA memberships are all-inclusive and include free swim lessons. Thismeans your kids can learn to swim, meet new friends and stay active – allat no additional cost.LEARN TO SWIM AND THEY’LL GROW UP STRONGBased on healthy child development principles, YMCA swim lessonsrecognize that children learn by experimenting, exploring, imitating, playingand having fun. That’s why our qualified instructors do more than teach swimskills. We also help build confidence in children by saying ’yes’ more than‘no’; telling them when we are proud of them and recognizing when they dothings right.A 30 minute weekly lesson goes a long way to promoting your child’sdevelopment and the YMCA continuous registration leads to regularparticipation and learning through progression. Star Leadership lessons are60 minutes in length.THERE’S A CLASS FOR ALL SKILLS LEVELSWhether you’re new to the Y or new to swimming, there’s a class for everyone.SWIM CONVERSION CHART:Age Group YMCA Program Red Cross Program6 – 36 months Parents & TotStarfishaccompanied byDucka parentSea Turtle3 – 5 years Bobbers Sea OtterFloatersGlidersDiversSurfersDipperSalamanderSalamanderSunfishCrocodileWhale6 – 12 years Otter Swim Kids 1Seal Swim Kids 2Dolphin Swim Kids 2/3Swimmer Swim Kids 4/5Swimmer Swim Kids 6Star 1 Swim Kids 7Star 2/3 Swim Kids 8Star 3/4 Swim Kids 9Star 5/6 Swim Kids 10Star 7 Swim Kids 10BEGINNERINTERMEDIATEBEGINNERINTERMEDIATEADVANCEDDISCOVER THE BENEFITS OFCONTINUOUS SWIM LESSONSAt the Y, you no longer need to scramble every season toensure your child gets a convenient swim lesson time.
