Teen & Adult Evening Swim Lessons (Ages 13+)

Teen & Adult Evening Swim Lessons (Ages 13+)

As the largest provider of swim lessons in the country, there’s no one more qualified than the Y to ensure swimmers build confidence with every stroke. In fact, we developed group swim lessons back in 1906! Welcoming kids and adults of all ages and abilities, our program offers a clear progression track to monitor achievement while every lesson emphasizes personal safety around water.

Whether you’re just starting out or want to improve your stroke technique, each instructor tailors lessons to fit the needs of needs student or students in the class.

Swimming is a low-impact sport that works all your muscle groups and builds cardiovascular endurance. It also stretches and lengthens your body, improving your posture. The support of the water and the lack of joint impact make swimming a good choice for people who are unable to undertake high-impact activities.

All lessons are conducted under the supervision of certified lifeguards and taught by nationally certified swim instructors trained in CPR, AED, First Aid and Oxygen Administration.
