So much water, so little time.

The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years and is the most accessible community resource for swimming lessons and water safety.

Swimmers who develop a love of the water and want further instruction can progress to the YMCA of Central Kentucky's competitive swim teams.

Learn how to swim with us! 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. 

We offer swimming lessons for all ages and levels - from infants and toddlers to teens and adults. Our progressive swimming lessons teach kids how to swim through fun activities that teach swim skills, strokes and technique. Adults interested in learning to swim are encouraged to take private or semi-private swimming lessons.
