We offer swim classes for infants, kids, teenagers, and adults. Find a class that’s right for you.
Parent and Child
Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness. Parents learn about water safety and drowning prevention.
Children learn water safety, basic swimming competency, and progress through levels as they develop skills.
School Age Child
Students learn personal water safety, achieve basic swimming competency, and progress to learn about the four competitive swimming strokes.
Teens and Adults
Teens and adults can choose from different levels of classes, beginning with water safety and swimming competency, to building and refining swimming stroke techniques.
Private Swim Lessons
Group lessons aren't for everyone. One-on-one time with a YMCA swim instructor might be just what you need.
Safety Around Water
Join us April 22-28 for Safety Around Water, a free YMCA program that promotes water safety education and swimming skills at branches across all five boroughs.
