STRONG SWIMMERS, CONFIDENT KIDS

SWIM LESSONS AT THE Y


Nurturing skills and building confidence in the water.

For more than 160 years, the YMCA has nurtured potential and united communities across America to create lasting, meaningful change. Everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. One of the most effective ways to accomplish this is to teach youth, teens, and adults to swim, so they can stay safe around water and learn the skills they need to make swimming a lifelong pursuit for staying healthy.

Y swim instructors are nationally certified. Their training includes CPR, AED, First Aid and Oxygen Administration. Swim lessons provide important life skills that could save a life and will benefit students for a lifetime.

Lessons will be taught in a lifeguarded, outdoor pool on the main campus of the Greater Naples YMCA.
