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.
YMCA PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS
Our certified, patient, and knowledgeable YMCA swim instructors teach private lessons beginning at age 3. Benefits of Private Swim Lessons help participants start swimming at their desired level and offer more flexibility than traditional group lessons with length of each lesson, lesson structure and own section of the pool. Private swim lessons are sold in 180-minute bundles. You and your swim instructor will collaborate to determine how the 180 minutes are segmented. For example, you may decide on 6 30-minute classes, or 3 60-minute classes, or maybe 4 45-minute classes, or any combination that you and your swim instructor feel will best meet your swim goals. For more information, please email Aquatic Director Jeff Morton at JMorton@ymcapawt.org.

Starting New at Golf, or S.N.A.G, is a youth golf program using specialty clubs and modified golf balls. Beginner to advanced group golf clinics, with up to 20 golfers, will be hosted throughout the year to enhance your golf game and teach fundamentals.
Golf Performance Assessments
All the movements of the golf swing work harmoniously together in less than 2 seconds. If one link of your golf swing is limited, it can affect other elements of your swing. During your golf performance assessment, we can measure over sixty different physical characteristics of your golf swing. These are the same tests that PGA and LPGA professionals go through at the Titleist Performance Institute in Carlsbad, CA. An internet based corrective conditioning program consisting of 18 custom workouts will be prescribed so that we can all work together to improve your swing and lower your score.
Golf Specific Training
Our golf performance assessment enables us to determine how your body is working throughout your golf swing. This program evaluates all areas of the body and all specific movement patterns. Once limitations are diagnosed, we correlate these findings with a visual look at your swing to determine your limitations and prescribe a program that attacks your weakest links. Benefits include improved core strength and balance, improved stability, and flexibility, improve swing consistency and reduce risk of injury.
