Ages 6 months – 3 years
In Swim Starters, infants and toddlers are accompanied by their parents as they learn to be comfortable in the water.
The focus of this class for children will be to develop swim readiness skills through fun, confidence-building experiences. Parents will also be taught about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision. To maximize safety, lifeguards are always on the pool deck during lessons.

Our Swim Starters lessons encompass stages A-B of the YMCA swimming curriculum. The student’s developmental levels determine which skills we introduce and build on as they progress.

New Lesson Format!
In order to better serve our Aquatics participants, we’ve restructured our registration process to provide more flexibility. Now, you can customize your swim lesson schedule by selecting the number of lessons per week, and days and times that work best for you!
Swim sessions are available in packages of four lessons (one lesson per week in a one-month period). To increase the number of lessons per week, you’ll simply add the additional day/time selections to your cart and proceed to check out. There is no guarantee that your child will have the same instructor for different days of the week, our lessons are curriculum-based. Each student will learn to master the skills for the Stage they are in while experiencing varied learning techniques.
