SWIM LESSONS

YMCA SWIM LESSONS

The Superior Y uses a standardized swim lesson curriculum developed by Y-USA. YMCA Swim Lessons allow children to learn to swim in small class sizes at water depths appropriate for the skill level. Non-swimming children or beginner swimmers will spend time in water no greater than chest deep. The pool itself is a zero-depth / beach entry pool that will allow for every class to be taught in water depth appropriate for the age and level of the class. The pool's water temperature stays between 87-90 degrees all year, making for an easy entry and no goosebumps!

Take time to read through the information below. If you have any questions after learning about the new swim lesson program, please contact our Aquatic Director Jess Melander.

SWIM LESSONS

Spring 2021 Session: April 26th-June 4th. Lessons meet once a week. 

MEMBER REGISTRATION opens April 12th, $40
GENERAL REGISTRATION opens April 19th, $80

**The Superior Douglas County Family YMCA will not be able to offer refunds for any program cancellation. Program cancellations less than halfway through the session may be credited with a pro-rated voucher by request. By enrolling your child in our programming you are agreeing to abide by the Superior YMCA Code of Conduct and you agree to follow all policies and protocols that are in place for YMCA youth programming.

SMALL GROUP LESSONS:
Swim Lessons meet once a week with groups for people of all ages and skill levels. Our program runs through SWIM STARTERS (stages A and B) for young children not ready to get in the water without a parent, SWIM BASICS (stages 1-3) for beginners learning basic water safety skills, SWIM STROKES (stages 4-6) for swimmers learning advanced stroke techniques, and SWIM PATHWAYS for advanced swimmers training toward health and wellness goals work with trained instructors in play-based student-oriented small group experiences.

PANDEMIC CONSIDERATIONS:
Swin instructors will move back to teaching SWIM BASICS lessons IN THE WATER effective April 25, removing the requirement for parents/caregivers to be in the water with their students. We will endeavor to maintain distancing between participants, but for safety considerations, instructors will make direct contact with students. Families may opt to provide an in-water caregiverin SWIM BASICS groups to facilitate their child’s lesson with additional distancing. SWIM STROKES level instructors may choose to instruct from the pool deck or in-water. SWIM STARTERS participants must have a caregiver in the water with them. We are also scheduling fewer skill groups overall in the pool area at a time to facilitate additional distancing between participants and scheduling increased time between groups to allow for reduced locker room congestion and sanitizing equipment between users. 
 

SWIM STARTERS:  LESSONS FOR 6 MONTHS-3 YEAR-OLDS
Each swimmer must be accompanied by a parent who will be in the water with them throughout their lessons. Lessons available Tuesdays at 12:30, Tuesdays at 5:55, Wednesdays at 1:15, Wednesdays at 5:15, or Thursdays at 5:55Register for "Swim Starters."

SWIM BASICS and SWIM STROKES: LESSONS FOR 3-12 YEAR-OLDS
Swimmers are placed in small groups with 2-4 other students of similar age and swim skill level. Register for "Swim Lessons for 3-12 year olds."

SWIM BASICS, SWIM STROKES, and SWIM PATHWAYS: SWIM LESSONS FOR TEENS AND ADULTS
SWIM BASICS and SWIM STROKES for teens and adults will occur on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm, pending minimum enrollment of at least 3 participants. SWIM PATHWAYS program available on Wednesdays at 7:30 for swimmers who wish to work on wellness goals, athletic conditioning, or train for triathlons.

  • New participants are encouraged to fill out a Swimmer Information Form to ensure the best group placement.

Adaptive Private Swim Lessons: If you or your child have unique needs or goals that would be better met with one-on-one instruction, one-on-one lessons or semi-private lessons may be available.
