Swim Lessons

Where the Youth of America Learn to Swim

The Quincy Family YMCA is the leader in group swim lessons and believes learning to swim should be a requirement for every child in our community. Swim lessons not only keep kids safe in the water, they also build self-esteem and confidence. All of our participants gain a greater understanding of not only the strokes, but also safety, rescue skills, and water activities they can enjoy for a lifetime. From our lesson program, children can graduate to our Swim Team. The Y teaches lessons year round in an indoor pool with trained and caring instructors.

Instructors are tailored to the participant’s needs and availability. Openings for new students of ALL ages and abilities are most afternoons, evenings and Saturday mornings.

Private and semi-private lessons include six half-hour lessons per session. Contact Amber Brown to schedule private lessons.
