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.

For those that prefer one-on-one instruction and to give each child the best opportunity to swim at his or her own pace. Stroke advancement is a large focus. 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 Casey Grave to schedule private lessons.
