Swim Lessons

Where the Youth of America Learn to Swim

Multiple times a year, the Y partners with the Irish House to offer swim lessons for youth 6 months to 5 1/2 years old. We believe 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.
