Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut



Swim Lessons
Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Ys offer swim lessons for all ages, family swim, competitive swimming and diving teams, and many kinds of adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment.

PLEASE BE ADVISED…there have been many changes to the YMCA existing swim lesson levels. There will no longer be Starfish, Polliwog, or Flying Fish classes. YMCA National is changing and restructuring the entire swim lesson program come January 2017. In an effort to start the process we are consolidating levels to better help place all of our swimmers and to have a smooth transition for you. Please place your child according to his/her ability rather than age. This is crucial for to ensure your children get placed in the proper level. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
