The Y offers tween & teen swim lessons at various competency levels from beginner to pre-competitive. We know that an 11-year-old beginner swimmer will not get in the pool with a 7-year-old swimmer of the same level. We have designed age-appropriate classes to ensure that children of any age can learn to swim and advance in their swimming goals for safety, fitness or sport.
