Taught by certified YMCA instructors, our swimming lessons will give you lifelong skills to help you be safe in and around the water. And you just might develop a lifelong passion for swimming!

Memberships at the YMCA of Greater Saint John include swimming lessons and access to all Y programs. Your child must be a member at the Y in order to be registered for lessons.

If your child has taken lessons before and you would like to match them in a program that aligns with their experience please bring in their old report cards upon registration. Our staff will be able to match your child’s experience with the perfect Y fit.
