Swim Lessons - Adult & Child (Ages 6 months to 3 years)

Swim Lessons - Adult & Child (Ages 6 months to 3 years)

The YMCA of Greater Des Moines is now teaching American Red Cross Swim lessons!  We believe that learning is a life-long journey and we take swimming from 6 months of age through adulthood.  Swimming is a healthy life-long fitness and recreational program for the entire family.  We challenge you to build on the knowledge that you already have all while having fun and being safe.

Our classes are designed to ensure the best learning experience for you and/or your child, and more importantly, their safety. Please carefully review the skills for each class level. Not sure which level to take? Take our class selector questionnaire. You and/or your child must be proficient in ALL of the skills listed in a lower level before being registered for a higher level. Should aquatic staff determine you/your child is not in the appropriate level, you/your child will be asked to move to a different class, if available. Safety and respect of others enrolled in the swim program will not allow for us to go over in teacher/student ratios. If space is not available in the child’s appropriate level, no refund will be given.

All registration for swim lessons will close one week prior to the start of the class.  Once registration for the class has closed, there will be no refunds or credits given.
