Home School Swim Basics
Stages 1-3

There's nowhere better to learn to swim than the Y, where we've been helping all ages to swim for more than 150 years. We teach all ages and abilities beginning at 6 months old. At Two Rivers YMCA, we provide a safe environment with certified instructors, and lifeguard(s) on duty when the pool is open. All of our staff is also CPR/AED/First Aid trained. Water safety is incorporated into our swim lessons. Each session, children receive progress reports showing the skills they have learned. In our Swim Basic Classes, students age 4-14 years will be introduced to swim readiness and water safety. 

Stage 1/Water Acclimation 
Increases comfort with underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.

Stage 2/Water Movement
Encourages forward movement in water and basic self-rescue skills performed independently. 

Stage 3/Water Stamina
Develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.
