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. 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)

Junior Breakers is currently not being offered by the YWCA. Please visit North Shore Swim Club for competive and non-competitive swimming options for children ages 5 – 18.
