Swim Lessons

Swim lessons at Countryside YMCA help children and adults learn basic water skills, improve swimming skills, practice water safety and learn water rescue skills. Of course, we have fun in the process. Swim lessons are progressive and class sizes are small so children and adults get the personalized swim instruction they need to build vital skills and prepare for the next program level. Our swim lessons help students learn basic swimming skills and our swim lesson evaluations ensure children are in the correct class for their level of swim skills.

2024-2025 School Year program registration opens August 12th, 7:00am for members and August 14th, 8:30am for program members. 

After August 14 anyone can register at any time throughout the 2024-2025 School Year Session (September-May) & when there is an opening in the class, you will start right away. No more waiting for the next session to start. If the program/class is full, we suggest you join the waitlist. This will allow our program directors to add more of the high demand classes or put you in line for when a spot opens up for that program/class.

Monthly Recurring Classes

Register Online or stop by the front desk to register in person. Once registered, your automatic payment will occur on the 1st of every month. We will prorate & offer make up classes as needed but there will not be a way to sign up in advance for future months until after 25th of the current month. You can sign your child up for a class and they will stay in that class until the end of the 2024-2025 School Year session (May 25, 2025). If at any time you wish to cancel registration you will fill out a digital cancelation form by the 20th of the month. Your child’s enrollment will then expire at the end of that month.

Water Fitness

Water Fitness Classes can help to improve joint flexibility, range of motion, motor skills, and cardiovascular endurance. From our low-impact workouts just about anybody can participate in (including people who are elderly, overweight, recovering from an injury, or dealing with arthritis) to our high-intensity cardio workouts, we love using water to increase fitness levels! Our classes are taught by certified instructors who can give personalized attention due to small class sizes.



YMCA-certified lifeguards are 15 years of age or older and are physically trained, mentally alert, and have the maturity to safely guard an aquatic area. Successful completion of this lifeguard course will grant you an American Red Cross Lifeguard certification. This course will teach you valuable and life saving skills and will be your first step in joining the Countryside YMCA Aquatic staff!
