The YMCA is the nation’s leading expert in water safety and swim instruction. In fact, millions of people have learned to swim at the Y throughout the last century. Along with Ys across the country, we have adopted a swim lesson curriculum that makes it easier for children and adults to become comfortable and safe in and around water. YMCA Swim Lessons begin with the development of basic self-rescue skills as well as building confidence and ease in the water. From there, swimmers refine the strokes they have learned and progress their skills. YMCA Swim Lessons also include character development, family involvement and safety education components.
The YMCA offers swim lessons for all skills levels in Lafayette, Boulder, Longmont, Johnstown and Cheyenne. YMCA Swim Lessons are organized by age, level and location.
