SWIM LESSONS

AT FORSYTH COUNTY FAMILY YMCA

The YMCA offers year-round swim lessons
and classes for all ages and skill levels.

About swim lessons

CLASSES FOR ALL SKILL LEVELS
Each participant will be skill tested during the first class to determine their stage of learning. Participants are placed according to current skill level so they can advance at their own pace with progress reports for mom and dad along the way. The staged approach allows swimmers to accelerate through stages + become confident swimmers.

3 STAGES
YMCA swim lessons are divided into 3 stages: swim starters, swim basics, and swim strokes. Each stage provides skill-appropriate swim lessons and activities for each age group.
