The YMCA offers the largest selection of swim lessons and aquatics activities in Québec, adapted to all levels and types of swimmers.
Divided by age groups and swim ability, classes are based on the YMCA's National Swimming Program, which has been a leading method of swim instruction, instructor-training, and safety in Canada since 1931.
Is this the first time your child is taking swim lessons or you're not sure what level to register them into?
Did your child take swimming lessons elsewhere and you're not sure what level to register them into?
For additional questions, please contact your local YMCA to speak with a YMCA swim instructor.
