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 Intermediate and Advanced swim lessons are for youth who have successfully demonstrated the swimming fundamentals of breath control, floating, freestyle and backstroke. In the intermediate level swim lessons, freestyle and backstroke will be refined with drills that focus on body position in the water, swim technique and rhythmic breathing. In the advanced swim lessons, swimmers will be introduced to breaststroke, elementary backstroke, and butterfly. Swim class will be held in both the instructional and competition pools. Swimmers will build their endurance to complete 25 yards of swimming or more.
