SWIM LESSONS
For more than 160 years, the YMCA has nurtured potential and united communities across America to create lasting, meaningful change. Everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. One of the most effective ways to accomplish this is to teach youth, teens, and adults to swim, so they can stay safe around water and learn the skills they need to make swimming a lifelong pursuit for staying healthy.

At the YMCA of Pawtucket, we understand that swim lessons are more than just stroke development. As they learn to swim, children also develop endurance, self-confidence, and an appreciation for water safety. The Y staff works hard to create an encouraging atmosphere in the water, where each swimmer can learn and progress at his or her own rate and comfort level.

WE’RE HERE FOR EVERYONE
All ages – from infants to seniors – can learn to swim. See our class offerings to find one that best fits your family’s busy schedule.

Check out our Swim Lesson stages:

Preschool Swim Stages A & B w/ Parent (6 months – 3 years)
Preschool Swim Stages 1 – 4 (3 years – 5 years)
Youth Swim Stages 1 – 6 (Ages 6 years – 12 years)

Preschool Swim Stage A & B: Water Discovery & Water Exploration (with Parent)
Introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment. Focuses on
exploring body positions, blowing bubbles and fundamental safety and
aquatic skills.

Preschool & Youth Swim Stage 1: Water Acclimation
Increases comfort with underwater exploration and basic self-rescue skills
performed with assistance. While using a flotation device, swimmers will
learn to swim independently in correct body position, become comfortable
getting their face wet, floating on their back and jumping into the pool
without assistance.

Preschool & Youth Swim Stage 2: Water Movement
Encourages forward movement in water and basic self-rescue skills
performed independently. Swimmers in this level swim independently
without a flotation device, get their face wet and jump in and exit
pool without assistance. Swimming in correct body position, forward
movement, back gliding and safety skills will be emphasized.

Preschool & Youth Swim Stage 3: Water Stamina
Develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at a longer distance
than in previous stages. At this level, students swim without a bubble
or with only a single slice flotation. They will learn to swim in a correct
prone front position with their face in the water and also back glide 10
yards without a bubble. This class builds endurance to swimming on front
one length of the pool without a flotation device and develops stroke
technique on front and back.

Preschool & Youth Swim Stage 4: Stroke Introduction
Introduces basic stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl
and reinforces water safety through treading water and elementary
backstroke. Rhythmic breathing and flutter kicks will be practiced.

Youth Swim Stage 5: Stroke Development
Introduces breaststroke and butterfly. Reinforces water safety through
treading water and side stroke. The four competitive strokes and side
stroke will be taught.
Participants should be able to swim the length of the pool with proper
rotary breathing before joining this class.

Youth Swim Stage 6: Stroke Mechanics
This introduction to competitive swimming refines stroke technique on all
four competitive strokes, builds endurance, and encourages swimming as
part of a healthy lifestyle

 

PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

The YMCA of Pawtucket offers private swim lessons to help participants start at their desired level. Our certified, patient and knowledgeable swim instructors offer private lessons for ages 3 and up. Private lessons offer swimmers more flexibility than traditional group lessons; scheduling, length of lesson, a request for a specific instructor, lesson structure, as well as their own section in the pool.
