Stage 2 Water Movement

School Age Swim Lessons

Stage 2 swim lessons for school age children at the YMCA focus on forward movement in the water and performing basic self-rescue skills independently, without the instructor's assistance.. Instructors help students continue to feel comfortable in an aquatic environment, both at the surface and underwater, as well as basic water safety. See Swim Lessons for an overview of our Stages progression.
