The YMCA Swim Program
Since 1931, the YMCA has been a leader in aquatics in Canada. That year the YMCA developed the first nationally recognized program and has continued to train aquatic leaders ever since. We offer Learn to Swim, the YMCA Star Program and the YMCA Star Leadership Program.
Why swim at the YMCA?
More Choice, More Fun: your child chooses what they would like to learn from a list of optional skills. These optional skills will complement our fundamental skills in each level.
Standardized Progressions: You and your child know what has been accomplished and what comes next.
Individual Learning: Your child is unique, and that's why our swim instructors create diverse activities to support your child's needs.
Quality First: Your child will spend more time receiving feedback on essential skills. Practice only makes perfect if the skill is practiced correctly. Shorter distances will be used to learn effective techniques first, and then used to build endurance.
Tracking Progress: Are you wondering what your child is learning? Our swim instructors are now planning each lesson based on a 4-6 week goal to encourage and identify success regularly.
Active and Wet: Your child will engage in vigorous physical activity as they learn. YMCA Learn to Swim and Star Programs are designed for children to be 100% in the water and swimming.
Seamless: Does your child want to be a lifeguard? The YMCA Star Leadership Program incorporates the Lifesaving Society's Canadian Swim Patrol Program for young lifesavers to nurture your potential lifeguard.
The Fundy YMCA offers lessons for both youth and adults, as well as private lessons.
Your membership includes 1 free lesson a week!
