Our swim lessons are based on the newest swim lesson curriculum from the Y of the USA: Safety Around Water. Through this approach to swim lessons, teens and adults all ages can progress at their own pace, while building the confidence needed to become a successful swimmer.
Beginners learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning benchmark skills. For those who have mastered the fundamentals, lessons will focus on learning additional water safety skills, building stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increasing social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and fostering a lifetime of physical activity.
For Andover/North Andover Trimester Swim lessons – New to 2023
Trimester Swim lessons for the year go live on August 1st! We are rolling out a new format this year. The two biggest changes have to do with registration dates and a rolling 4-month schedule. We will only be releasing lessons in 4 month increments with staggered registration dates based on membership! Our Household and Family Members will be able to register for swim lessons 5 days ahead of our individual and non-members!
You will still be able to sign up for more than one month at time, up to 4 months and we have kept the hassle free monthly draft on the 1st of each month!
Parents/guardians are required to be in the building during programming.
All levels are taught within each class and children are grouped with others of a like ability. Swimmers are evaluated and grouped by level on the first day of classes.
We have placed limits and ratios for all classes and levels to promote overall health, safety and quality guidelines.
To promote overall safety and health for staff and swimmers if you or your swimmer are feeling ill or exhibiting signs and symptoms of illness, please refrain from attending programming at the YMCA. You may be asked to sit out a lesson/head home if you or your swimmer is exhibiting any signs of symptoms if illness.
