YMCA of Greater San Antonio
Y Swim Lessons classes offered are designed to give your child a positive learning experience. We focus on teaching lifelong swimming and water safety skills, in a fun, supportive and safe environment.
Classes are divided into "ability groups" and trained YMCA Swim Instructors emphasize lesson curriculum while guiding students with praise and encouragement. Instructional floatation devices are used in all levels of the Y swim lesson program to help practice skills, build endurance and increase safety.
Parent-Child Swimming (Ages 6 mo. - 2 years)Parent-Child Swimming classes are designed to get both parents and children safe and comfortable in the water. Water orientation will be taught using music and games while the parent guides the child through aquatic skills. In-water participation with one parent or guardian per child is required. Preschool and youth participants will be evaluated on the first day of class and placed into small groups based on skill level. Preschool Swimming (Ages 3 years - 5years) The preschool lesson teaches water adjustment and basic swimming skills. Children participate without parents. Instruction includes: assisted and independent paddle stroke, floating, kicking, going underwater, pool safety, and boating safety. No pre-requisite for enrollment is required.
Youth Swimming (Ages 6 years - 12 years)The youth lessons teach six strokes in an age appropriate progressive manner: front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke, butterfly, sidestroke, and elementary backstroke. As children progress, they will be introduced to rhythmic and rotary breathing, refining stroke technique, and swimming longer distances. No pre-requisite for enrollment is required.
