From swim lessons for all ages to Olympia Youth Swim team and a variety of aquatics classes, the Y offers something for all. Browse through the options and pick out something new to try.

SWIM LESSONS

We specialize in progressive, developmentally appropriate water safety and instruction. The Y offers swim classes for infants, toddlers, school-age youths, teens, and adults in classes that are suited to their skill level. At the Y, we believe kids of all ages should have the opportunity to learn how to swim.

  • Swim lessons registration window opens 2 weeks prior to the first day of each session.
  • Priority registration for Family Memberships! First week of registration window.
  • If you’re unsure of what class to sign up for, please use our Level Selector.

 

PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

If you prefer to work one-on-one with an instructor or are looking to focus on a specific aspect of swimming, private lessons are an option. One session consists of four 30-minute lessons; these 4-week session dates will run in conjunction with the group swim lesson dates.

  • Swim lessons registration window opens 2 weeks prior to the first day of each session.
  • Priority registration for Family Memberships! First week of registration window.
  • Semi-private lessons are also available for 2 students to work with the same instructor. This is a great option for siblings!
