SWIM STARTERS

For children from 6 months to 3 years old, YMCA Swim Starters swim lessons help children become comfortable in water and teach parents about water safety. These lessons do not teach children how to survive in water or become accomplished swimmers. Instead, Swim Starters swim lessons create a foundation of aquatic skill through fun and confidence-building experiences. Parents and caregivers learn how to supervise children in water, prevent accidents and plan for emergencies. These lessons are held in Boulder, Lafayette and Longmont.
