Swim Lessons

The YMCA has been teaching children how to swim and stay safe in the water for over 100 years. Starting with parent/child instruction and moving to progressive preschool and youth classes, participants develop stroke mechanics, confidence in the water, teamwork and leadership skills. Along with the safety component, our program also incorporates personal growth opportunities, stroke development, water sports and games...all to get kids water safe and ready for the Lima Barracudas Swim Team.

Classes held in the Therapy Pool.
