At your Y we strive to bring you the best quality swim lessons for an incredibly low cost.  Whether you are a Y member or a community member you are able to get our swim lessons within each session throughout the year for as less than $3 per class for members and just over $9 per class for community members ($20 Y members or $65 for community members).  Strong swimmers make confident kids and that confidence can put parent minds at ease around the water. We are proud to announce the new Y-USA Swim lesson curriculum!  Join us for a focused assessment-based program where you can track your child’s progress through the course of the session and keep that progress from session to session!  We are equipping you with the tools to keep tabs on lessons as well with our new PLAYERSPACE tracking system!  Ask the front desk for more details.
