Swimming at the Y helps people thrive - in and out of the water. Swim lessons provide kids and teens with the opportunity to set goals and achieve success, learn water safety and enjoy swimming as a form of exercise. Through swimming lessons, swim teams, lap swimming and more, the YMCA of Central Kentucky provides a safe environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities.

Swim Lessons

YMCA swimming lessons are a progressive program teaching swimming skills, stroke technique and water safety skills such as floating, treading water and safety entering and exiting a pool. Swim lessons are available for all ages, from infants to adults. Private and semi-private swim lessons are also available. Our swimming programs are led by trained instructors who are certified in CPR and First Aid in addition to their formal swim instructor training.
