We offer year round swim lessons starting at 6 months!
Offered year round on days and times that are convenient for you, our swim lesson program begins as early as six months old. This life-saving skill is crucial! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in five people who die from drowing are children 14 and younger. A large percent of children drown within 6-10 feet of safety. Most of these drownings happen because of no or very little basic water safety knowledge and skills. The Geneva Lakes Family YMCA is committed to building each child's skills!
Parent/Child Classes (beginning at 6 months)
Accompanied by a parent, infants (beginning at 6 months) and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.
