YMCA Swim Lessons

No matter your age or ability, you can learn to swim at the West Philadelphia YMCA. Our YMCA trained and certified instructors cover swimming skills, stroke technique and water safety in a friendly and encouraging environment. With small instructor to student ratio, our swim lessons provide personal instruction while providing a fun atmosphere.

The YMCA swim lessons program is centered around five main components: personal safety, personal growth, stroke development, water sports and games and rescue.  The emphasis is on progressive learning, using a student-centered and developmentally appropriate approach to teaching.  Our goal is to help children build confidence and skills through positive reinforcement, promoting life-long health and fitness.
