Learn To Swim For All Ages

Here at the Y, we pride ourselves on providing a great place to learn how to swim for all ages. We offer a wide range of classes in our year-round program to meet the needs of members and our Windward community. Our well-trained staff focuses primarily on teaching stroke development, but there are many other aspects of swimming that we include such as safety around water, water sports, and an all-around, enjoyable experience in the water.

Our Y Learn to Swim format easily tracks & accelerates a student's progression and our traditional fish animal badges ensure a fun sense of achievement every "stroke" of the way.

 Swim Test

A swim test will be highly recommended for any new participant wanting to register for any class other than Pike or Jellyfish. Please note that a swim test does not guarantee a space in the program. Spaces are available on a first come first served basis.

Swim tests will be conducted by appointment only.
