Private Swim Lessons

The YMCA Swim Lesson Curriculum is a core group of aquatic skills every person needs to be safe around water. As the foundation of our program, these skills allow students to learn correct swim stroke techniques. Students begin with and build upon skills they are ready to learn, helping them to celebrate their successes, build self-confidence, and enjoy learning to swim and water safety.


Our Private Swim Lessons provide more flexibility and one-on-one instruction at a time that is convenient for you and your family. Our experienced instructors teach core swimming skills and stroke techniques so children and adults can become more confident swimmers. Private swim lessons will be offered in 1:1 and 2:1 ratios.
