Hampshire Regional YMCA

Ages 3-12

The YMCA’s youth swim lessons teach your child how to become a safe and confident swimmer in a friendly and supportive small-group setting.

As their skills and confidence in the water grows, young swimmers progress from learning basic water safety to swimming skills including:

  • How to tread and float in the water
  • Proper breathing techniques
  • Key swimming strokes (such as the front crawl and backstroke) needed to pass the YMCA swim test
  • Safety and rescue skills
  • Proper conditioning and personal fitness habits


  • Once a class fills a waitlist will begin.  If a space becomes available you will notified prior to the first class.
  • If our pools are closed due to a thunderstorm or other unexpected circumstance, make up classes will be held at the end of the session.
  • Membership must be active through the program session to receive the member discount.
  • For parent/child classes, one parent or guardian may accompany each participant.
