YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Swim Lessons

At the Y, we believe the ability to swim is a critical life skill. In swim lessons, we use a variety of fun methods to help kids overcome fears, build confidence in the water, learn water safety and develop skills that last a lifetime. Structured classes are divided by age and skill level and taught by qualified swim instructors- certified in CPR, AED and First Aid.

The Y now offers swim lessons at not one, but FIVE pools including the Wilmington Family YMCA, Oleander Rehab Center, Robert Strange, Northside and Legion Stadium Pools. See below for more details!
