*At the Y, we know families take a variety of forms.  As a result, we define parent broadly to include all adults with primary responsibility for raising children, including biological parents, adoptive parents, guardians, stepparents, grandparents, or any other type of parenting relationship.

NOTE:  SUMMER SESSIONS RUN  Monday – Thursday, all 4 days, for 2 weeks

Youth Group Swim Lessons

Due to many changes in the Y-USA requirements, if they have not been in a 2017 session, you must sign them up for the next test out day to learn what stage your child will be in for their swim lesson.  If your child is in a session of swim lessons currently, they will be given their skill level for the next session.

Once your child has passed stage 5 they will be ready for either competitive or non competitive swim team.
