Help your child develop one of the most important safety skills they can learn! Our swim lessons teach water safety while kids have fun in the pool.
With progressive levels to meet your child’s needs, YMCA swim lessons will equip them with swimming and safety skills to last a lifetime.
Indoor lessons are available year-round at our South branch, and outdoor lessons are offered at Carl Junction's Bulldog Beach between Memorial Day and Labor Day! Private lessons are also available.
Adaptive swim lessons for children with autism are hosted by the Bill and Virginia Leffen Center for Autism in the South Y’s pool. For more information, please contact the Leffen Center at 417 347 7850.
