The Y was the first organization to establish certification programs for lifesaving, swimming and aquatic instruction, and it's a tradition we're proud to continue today. Whether you're looking for basic water safety courses, advanced swimming lessons, first aid classes, or to become a certified lifeguard, the Y is the leader in swim safety and training.

With a focus on water safety and skill development, the YMCA Swim Lesson program is effective at helping children and adults learn to swim and, most importantly, be safe around water.
