Home School Swim Strokes
(Stages 4-6)

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 4/Stroke Introduction
Introduces basic stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and reinforces water safety through treading water and elementary backstroke.

Stage 5/Stroke Development
Introduces breaststroke and butterfly and reinforces water safety through treading water and sidestroke.

Stage 6/Stroke Mechanics
Refines stroke technique on all major competitive strokes and encourages swimming as part of a healthy lifestyle.
