Spring Swim Lessons - NEW UPGRADES!


The Y introduced the concept of group swim lessons in 1909. Now, each year in more than 2,000 pools across the country, the Y teaches more than a million children from all backgrounds invaluable water safety and swim skills. Here at the Gateway Region YMCA, we teach on average 14,000 children water safety and swimming each year. We are excited to announce the rollout of a new swim lesson curriculum! The updated curriculum includes

  • Higher quality curriculum based on extensive research by the Y of the USA
  • Reduced Class Ratios
  • Increased number of classes offered to 8 per session
  • Introduction of new Swim Stages - Goodbye fish names!
  • Additional parent communication tools
