Youth Swim

The YMCA knows swim lessons, in fact, modern swim instruction was invented at the Y. Millions have learned how to swim at the Y – your child could be next.


In partnership with YUSA, we are offering swim lesson scholarships for 8 weeks of lessons starting August 26. Families who earn less than $50,000 annually qualify to apply. We will accept applications through August 31 at our SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA and Northeast Family YMCA. Must bring proof of income.

Our YMCA certified instructors focus on swim instruction, water safety and fun for everyone.  Your child will build friendships, develop self-esteem and create positive experiences that will last a lifetime. We offer swim lessons for all ages and skill levels, lifeguard certification and the Stingray Youth Swim Team.

Year round swim lessons are offered in our warm-water, indoor pools.  Lessons are offered once a week with class offerings in the morning and evenings.
