Water Acclimation


Swim Basics are introductory classes divided into three progressive stages that include the foundations of water safety and basic swimming skills, focusing on swimming to safety. This stage introduces swimmers to the pool and helps them develop safe water habits.

AGES: Preschool (3-5) or Youth (6-12)
TIME: 35 minutes per lesson
FEES: Vary by center

Water Acclimation is the first stage of swim lessons and focuses on skills for beginners. In Water Acclimation, students are introduced to the pool and develop safe water habits in a fun and encouraging environment. Students become comfortable with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit a body of water in the event they fall in. This introductory stage builds the foundation for the child's future progress in swimming.

This swim lesson stage is available for preschool (ages 3-5) or youth (ages 6-12) swimmers at most Y locations. Age groups are taught the same skills but divided according to their developmental milestones.
