Swim Lessons

YWCA Greater Newburyport’s Aquatics programs encourage individuals and families to enjoy lifelong skills, fun, and confidence in and around the water.

Diane Sagaser, Aquatics Director

Due to COVID-19, we are presently not offering Adult Group Swim Lessons. Private adult lessons are available.

For more information,  please contact Diane Sagaser, Aquatics Director
Infant with Parent

In this class, infants begin to be comfortable in the water by playing water games, singing songs, and repeating skills.
ages: 6 – 18 months

Toddler with Parent

Now that we are toddlers, we’re ready to swim! We play, sing, and learn to kick, reach and pull, jumping in, and blowing bubbles
ages: 18 – 36 months




Pre-school swim lessons are offered with and without parent and are designed to meet the unique needs of young children as they develop and strengthen swimming skills. *These classes are without the Parent accompanying the child in swim lesson. Goggles are strongly recommended and are available for purchase at the front desk.

ages: 3 – 5 years  (not yet in Kindergarten)





School-age Swim lessons are structured with the older child in mind. As bodies and minds mature, so does the ability to develop their swim skills. Youth are grouped by ability. Classes are held in the lap pool. Goggles are strongly recommended.

ages: 5 years + (must be currently enrolled in Kindergarten)



Adaptive Swim Lessons are currently not running due to COVID-19.  Please contact Diane Sagaser for more information.

The YWCA Greater Newburyport is happy to offer the option of private swimming lessons for adults, children, and/or athletes. Fill out a form at the front desk and we will get back to you within 24 hours. Classes are 30 minutes long.

Adult Swim Lessons
The Adult Swim Lessons allows swimmers to progress at their own pace, mastering one set of skills before moving on to the next. Swimming lessons for adults follow a progression to develop and meet the needs of adult learners.  From learning the basics to swimming for fitness the YWCA can help you build your skills and swim more efficiently.
