Adaptive Swim Lessons
As the largest provider of swim lessons in the country, there’s no one more qualified than the Y to ensure swimmers build confidence with every stroke. Welcoming kids and adults of all ages and abilities, our program offers a clear progression track to monitor achievement while every lesson emphasizes personal safety around water.
In partnership with the YMCA of Snohomish County Stingrays, the YMCA is also offering adaptive swim lessons aimed at youth with intellectual/developmental disabilities. These classes are taught in small groups, with one certified instructor and several volunteers assisting the youth. Family participation is encouraged in these swim lessons as appropriate. Swim lessons are intended for youth who are not yet ready to join the swim team, and are offered at a subsidized cost.
Registration includes eight 30 lessons during reserved time in your Y’s pool.
Certified Y instructors foster a safe, educational, and FUN environment where swimmers feel empowered to meet and exceed their goals. Safe swimming saves lives.
Swim Basics (Stages 1-3)
Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:
* Swim, float, swim – sequencing front glide, roll, back float, and exit.
* Jump, push, turn, grab
Swim Strokes (Stages 4-6)
Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.
