Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

Our swim lessons are Kendall County’s best way for your child to learn to swim safely!  Learning to swim is the most important thing your child can do when it comes to reducing the risk of drowning.  The Fox Valley Family YMCA is proud to offer swim lessons following the newest Y USA curriculum. The Y USA Swim Lesson Program helps adults, children and families learn an important life skill and supports them in gaining the knowledge, ability, and stamina to become strong and confident swimmers.

If you are new to the program or are not sure what level to place your child, take advantage of a free swim evaluation.  The Aquatics Staff will determine the appropriate level for your child.  Registering for the appropriate swim level will ensure your child gets the maximum benefit from the class.  Evaluation dates do not necessarily match up with class start dates.  No evaluation is needed for parent participation.

Please note: due to COVID-19, dates and times are subject to change.
