Swim Lessons

At the Peoria YMCA we know swimming is a life skill as much as it is great exercise and a challenging sport.

The Y’s outdoor pool is the perfect place for your family to learn, improve and enjoy swimming.

Summer Swim Lessons:

  • All lessons are 30 minutes and sessions include eight (8) lessons.  
  • Parents will self-assign their child’s stage (see Lesson Selector link below). Classes fill up quickly, so early registration is recommended.
  • Instructor/student ratio: Pre-school (5 & under) = 1:6; Youth (6-12) = 1:8.
