Swim Lessons

The YMCA is the place where the children of America learn to swim. At the Warren County YMCA, we believe that every child has the right to learn to swim. To keep kids in our community safe, we offer swimming lessons from trusted experts. Our goal is to teach young people the fundamentals of different strokes while building their confidence and self-esteem in the water. Additionally, we instruct students in the safety and rescue skills they need to protect themselves and their peers.

At the Y, we happily teach swim lessons year-round in our indoor pool. After graduating from our lesson program, children can participate in our swim teams.

Online registration for swimming lessons will follow the session schedules. If a session has already begun, please contact the YMCA’s front desk to register or visit us online. We also offer private and semi-private lessons for older children just learning to swim, children with special needs, adults who are nervous around the water, and busy families that can’t fit the regularly scheduled group lessons into their days
