Swim Starters

Accompanied in the water by a caregiver, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experience, while caregivers learn about water safety, drowning prevention and the importance of supervision.

Ages: 6 months - 36 months

Parents accompany children in Stage A, which introduces infants and toddlers to the swimming environment through exploration and encourages them to enjoy themselves while learning about the water.

Ages: 6 months - 36 months

In Stage B, parents work with their children to explore body positions, floating, blowing bubbles and fundamental safety and swimming skills.

If you’re having difficulty choosing the appropriate stage, the Y’s Swim Lessons Selector can help, or give us a call at the branch and we’d be happy to assist you.

Build confidence with every stroke.
