Private swim lessons are designed to give participants individualized attention to improve or master their swimming skills. Private swim lessons allow a participant to work at a personalized level and on specific skills. These lessons are available for YMCA Members only and are based on a mutually agreed date and time.



Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

Water Exploration– Water discovery for students 6-18 months old. Parents will continue setting the foundation for their child’s independent swimming and fundamental safety skills.

Water Independence – This is a transition class for students 18-36 months old. Focus will be placed on swimming with the instructor and taking turns while continuing swimming and safety skills.



Students will learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning important water safety skills. Introduction and mastery of freestyle and backstroke will be a focus.

Water Acclimation – This level will work on increasing the level of comfort with underwater exploration. The classes will introduce basic self-rescue skills, and basic swim strokes with assistance from the instructors. This class is perfect for participants who are nervous about water and are unwilling to fully submerge their heads underwater.

Water Movement -This level will encourage forward movement in water and continuation of self-rescue skills performed independently. Freestyle and backstroke skills are introduced in this level. This class is for participants who are comfortable in the water but cannot swim independently.
