Tom A. Finch Community YMCA

Swim Lessons

Y-USA has rolled out their new swim lesson program and guess what—WE ARE OFFERING IT! This program uses a building block approach for swimming and puts extra emphasis on SAFETY in and around the pool. 

In this building block format, we will focus on skills that help the swimmer feel most comfortable first, adding new skills when they are ready. We will start with basics like submerging and bubbles, then add floating and gliding. Once those basic skills are accomplished, we will start to add strokes.

Class names will be different too! Our new STAGES will be numbered so there are no questions about where to go next.

PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

Private swim lessons are intended for those persons seeking individual, one-on-one attention, and/or a less self-conscious environment than may be present during group lessons.  We also offer Semi-Private lessons for those persons seeking smaller group instruction than during regular group lessons. Private and semi-private swim lessons are scheduled during YMCA operational hours at times convenient to student and instructor.  

Private Swim Lesson Fees:

Finch Y Members Non-Members
$15 per 30-minute lesson $25 per 30-minute lesson
$25 per 1 hour lesson $45 per 1 hour lesson
$75 per 4 session package (45 min.) $125 per 4 session package (45 min.)
   

Semi-Private Swim Lesson Fees:

Interested parties are responsible for assembling a group for semi-private group lessons.

Finch YMCA Members:    $110 for 2 swimmers – 6 session package (30 min.)

                                   $144 for 3 swimmers – 6 session package (30 min.)

                                   $195 for 3 swimmers – 6 session package (30 min.)

 

**Swimmers must be age 8 and over to participate in lessons lasting 45 minutes or longer.**

All lessons, regardless of package must be paid for for in full prior to the beginning of the first lesson. All lesson packages expire after 3 months of purchase. Late arrivals are not guaranteed additional time to make up for their tardiness. Extra time will be given at the instructor's discretion. Failure to notify your instructor you cannot attend a scheduled lesson will result in a loss of lesson. All lessons will place during YMCA operational hours at times that are convenient to the instructor and particpant, but not as to interfere with YMCA aquatic programs such as water aerobics, swim lessons, or swim team practices.
