YOUTH SWIM LESSONS

swimming23RFrom preschoolers to adults, we specialize in all aspects of water safety and lifelong swim skills ranging from overcoming fear of water to upper level stroke development. Learning to swim at the Y is about more than just stroke development. It's a swimmer-centered approach, where students learn through play, hands-on exercises and creative repetition. Children are taught in small groups with swimmers at their skill level. When ready, swimmers can apply their skills to upper level programs like swim team, lap swimming for exercise, and lifeguard training.

Swimming is an activity you can enjoy your whole life. Let the Y help your family discover the exercise, sport and fun that is swimming!

Our goal is to serve the community as a resource in aquatics education and water safety through student-centered swim instruction. Children learn and practice new swim skills that last a lifetime. Swim evaluations during week one ensure proper class level placement. Lessons are offered at our Fairless Hills and Newtown locations.
