Swim Lessons

The aquatic programs of the YMCA are about more than just techniques and skills; they are about building friendships, developing self-esteem and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime.
• Any swimmer with a serious medical condition should inform YMCA Staff upon registration.
• YMCA lessons are for both members and non-members.
• Memberships include registration in one lesson per session.
• Due to our child protection policies, photos are not permitted during lessons. If you would like to take a photo of your child swimming, please speak to the Instructional Team Lead to arrange.
• Photographic equipment of any kind is not permitted in any of our changerooms.
• In the event of a pool fouling, the Ontario Health Regulations require pool closure.
• We do not offer make up lessons.

We assume that once 3 consecutive lessons have been missed, the swimmer has been withdrawn from the program, unless notified by a parent.

Progress Reports
Lesson progress reports are now available online! Swimmers who successfully complete their swim level can pick up their sticker or badge from their instructor. To access Progress Cards, visit: http://swimgen.net/search/wdy_ymca
Enter your child’s 6 digit participant number, found on their YMCA membership card (the small series of numbers), and click “View Reports” to access their online progress reports.

Private Lessons
Is your child stuck on a certain stroke or need help getting comfortable in the pool? Are you looking for one-on-one instruction for your swimmer? Are you looking to enhance your own strokes or confidence in the pool? Private lessons are the way to go! This is a great way to improve self esteem and confidence in the water for swimmers of any age!
Private lessons are half an hour in length, and have a per class cost of $20 (Members)/$45 (Non Members).
Please contact the Aquatic Supervisor for more information.

Level Assessment
Unsure of what swimming level to register your child in? Come to the pool during an open swim and a lifeguard will perform an evaluation and recommend the appropriate level for lessons.
