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.
Homeschool Harbor swim lessons are intended for children ages six through twelve who are comfortable in the water and can demonstrate the fundamentals of swimming, including swimming the length of the instructional pool without assistance. The first 30 minutes of the swim class will be devoted to large group swimming instruction focused on improving skills and endurance while refining techniques for freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and elementary backstroke. The second part of class will provide free swim time for students to practice skills and experiment with a variety of instructional swimming devices under the supervision of the swim instructor.
