Spring Session Begins February 26

The aquatics programs at the Y are about more than just the techniques and skill; they are about building friendships, developing self-esteem and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime.

Swim Lesson Skills By Level

These lists do not include all the skills covered in each level; it contains those skills that may help parents determine the level at which their child should register.

Look at each level and determine whether your child can consistently perform all the skills within that level. If so, check the next level, and keep moving through until you reach one for which your child cannot consistently perform all the skills. That probably is the right level for your child. It is better to underestimate the child’s abilities than to overestimate the child’s abilities.

It is easier to move a child to a higher level than to move him or her down. If you are still not sure of your child’s level after looking at this list, contact the Aquatic Department to set up an assessment test for your child prior to registering for a class.
