Our YMCA certified instructors focus on swim instruction, water safety and fun for everyone. Your child will build friendships, develop self-esteem and create positive experiences that will last a lifetime. We offer swim lessons for all ages and skill levels, lifeguard certification and the Stingray Youth Swim Team.
Year round swim lessons are offered in our warm-water, indoor pools. Outdoor lessons are offered during the summer months at the Rockford Park District pools.
Additionally, we have free swim lessons for foster care families through a partnership with the nonprofit UNSINKABLE. A YMCA membership is not required for these free lessons. For families interested, please contact our membership desk or email our team at email@example.com.
Outdoor lessons at Alpine Park Pool and Sand Park Pool are by registration. 2023 registration is open with lessons starting in June. Free, drop-in lessons are available at Harkins Aquatic Center starting June 19th Monday-Thursdays at 4:15pm.
