Y SWIM LESSONS All New Curriculum


At the Y, we believe swimming is a vital life skill. Our swim lessons prepare kids of all ages to stay safe and have fun in the water, building strong swimmers and confident kids. 

The Y's new swim lessons are arranged by numeric levels (no more aquatic fish names).   Within the levels, swimmers will learn skills such as personal safety, being comfortable under water, being comfortable above the water, breathing control, and other fundamental swimming skills to use throughout their lifetime.   

Classes are divided accordingly by skills, not by age.  It is important to assess your child's skill level before signing up for swim lessons.  It is essential that your child attend a Skill Testing Session.  It is also essential that you attend a Parent Orientation.  Once your swimmer has been assessed and you've attended an orientation, you need not do this again unless you want your swimmer reassessed. 

Skill Testing Dates: Your child must attend one of these skill testings before signing up for swim lessons. If you are not able to attend, please contact the Marion Family YMCA for an appointment.
