Swimming Lessons

Join us for FALL swim Lessons at the Y! 

The FALL swim lesson schedule is still in the works! We appreciate your patience as we work to hire, train, and schedule quality instructors. Be sure to LIKE our Facebook page to stay in the know! 


Class times and class levels are subject to change due to class size and instructor availability. The minimum number for any class is 3 participants. Parents are required in the water with parent/child swimming lessons. The swimming pool does shut down during thunder/lightning storms as a precaution for patron safety.

No one is turned away for the inability to afford Y programs. Ask about the Inga Nelson swim scholarship. We also offer general Y financial assistance for programs.

Credit/refunds will not be given for individual program days missed. You must cancel at least 3 business days prior to the start of the program to receive full credit or refund. If you cancel after the deadline, we may not able to issue a credit or refund. The YMCA reserves the right to change, cancel or combine programs as necessary. If a program is cancelled, a full credit or refund will be issued. There will be no credit/refunds due to weather-related cancellations unless the cancellation is multiple days or more or there are other extenuating circumstances.

Private and Semi-Private Swimming Lessons

At this time, we are currently offering limited opportunities for private lessons due to a staff shortage.

Private Swimming Lessons

Private lessons are sold in packages of 4-30 minute lessons. Lessons include one-on-one time with the instructor as well as a curriculum geared towards the goals of the swimmer. After registering with member services, a swim lesson instructor will contact you via telephone to set up your lessons.

Semi-Private Swimming Lessons

Semi-private lessons are sold in packages of 4-30minute lessons. Lessons include individualized time with the instructor. Semi-private lessons are ideal for pre-established small groups of people with similar abilities and goals. The cost is per person. You must create your own small group of similar-level participants. After registering with member services, a swim lesson instructor will contact you via telephone to set up your lessons.
