Few things are more inviting than a bright blue, sparkling pool, and the Y has more than 20 of them ready for year-round use! Whether you’re looking for basic lessons, a competitive swimmer who wants to improve their stroke, or just working to stay fit and socially connected, the Y has a pool, program, or lesson for you.
YMCA Swim lessons emphasize water safety and development of self-esteem in a safe and nurturing environment. In our Central Florida community, it’s vital that all ages feel confident and can have fun in and around water. Choose from group swim lessons or private lessons with certified instructors from an aquatics program that’s taught kids and adults alike how to swim for generations.
As part of our specialty camps, campers learn new skills, build confidence, and have fun in and around the water. No matter skill level, interests, or experience, there’s a theme right for your camper from Swim 101 to Wacky Water Sports. Explore camp themes and find yours today!
Safe Start and Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) are the leading behavioral-based approach to swimming lessons, using techniques that are developmentally appropriate for your child. Non walking infants will be taught to roll on to their back to float, rest and breathe while children that are walking will be taught to use a swim-float-swim sequence to reach safety.
In the state of Florida, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children under age 4. Learning to stay safe around water may begin at the Y, but it doesn’t end there. That’s why engaging and educating families is an essential part of drowning prevention.
