SWIM STARTERS

For children ages 6 months-3 years, YMCA Swim Starters swim lessons help children develop a comfort level in water and teach parents about water safety. Our lessons do not teach children how to survive in water or become accomplished swimmers. Instead, YMCA swim lessons create a foundation of aquatic skill through fun and confidence-building experiences. Parents and caregivers learn how to supervise children in water, prevent accidents and plan for emergencies. Swim lessons held in Boulder, Lafayette and Longmont.
