Frequently Asked Questions
Our program is unique in that we offer parents the convenience of registering just once for their child’s swim lesson.
As your child progresses through the YMCA Swim program (moving from one level to the next), the Aquatic Team Lead will automatically move your child into the appropriate class. If a class that your child should be moving to isn’t available in your chosen time/day, the Aquatic Supervisor will contact you to help find another available class to suit your schedule.
There is no need to re-register for each swim level. This will be done automatically for you.
Scan your child’s membership card at the front desk and proceed to the change room. Change your child into swim attire. Enter the pool through the shower area. Locate the Aquatic Host to sign in your child to his/her lesson. You will also be required to sign out your child from swim lessons.
The Aquatic Host will help you find your child’s class. Each week you will meet your instructor at the same meeting spot.
Our family change room is for families with children of all ages and is also available for members with special needs that require assistance from a caregiver. Families also have the option to use the general change rooms.
Our rolling registration runs from September until June. At that point you may register from our Summer swim lesson session. You are required to register for September swimming lessons each year. The date September registration begins will be announced online and posted in our YMCA when it is determined.
If your child misses 3 classes in a row we presume that you are no longer interested in this swim lesson space and your child’s registration is automatically deleted to make space available for the many children waiting to participate (you may re-register at any time as long as there is space in the class).
Progress cards are created or updated every 8 weeks. You may also request a progress card at anytime by speaking with the Aquatic Supervisor.
When walking through the showers or onto the pool deck, outdoor footwear must be removed. You are welcome to wear indoor shoes, sandals or walk in bare feet. All food or beverages other than water in a plastic bottle must be left in the change room.
