Developing lifelong swim skills and a lifetime love of the water are the goals of Youth Swim Lessons. For ages 6 to 14 years, Youth Swim Lessons offer instruction on strokes and water safety, as well as character building. YMCA of the USA-certified instructors pre-plan lessons for structured classes in a fun environment. Kids build up to learning six strokes: freestyle, elementary backstroke, backstroke, breast stroke, sidestroke and butterfly. Lessons are provided by level to give each child the best opportunity to learn at his or her own pace with children of a similar level. Instructors assess skills on the first day, and group children based on their abilities. All Youth Swim Lessons have an instructor to student ratio of one to eight. At the Fish level, swimmers should be able to swim the front crawl stroke with rotary breathing for 50 yards and know basic breaststroke, sidestroke and elementary backstroke. Students work to refine the crawl stroke, elementary backstroke, back crawl stroke and sidestroke with turns and receive an introduction to the butterfly stroke.
