There's nowhere better to learn to swim than the Y, where we've been helping all ages to swim for more than 150 years. We teach all ages and abilities beginning at 6 months old. At Crossroads YMCA, we provide a safe environment with certified instructors, and lifeguard(s) on duty when the pool is open. All of our staff is also CPR/AED/First Aid trained. Water safety is incorporated into our swim lessons. Each session, children receive progress reports showing the skills they have learned. In our Parent/Child swim classes, children age 6 months-3 years with a parent will be introduced to swim readiness and water safety. We offer the following two classes at Hammond, Southlake and Whiting branches.
Water Babies (6 months–2 years)
The primary goal of this program is comfort and safety. Songs and games are an important part of the instruction at this level. Motor skills will also be presented. A parent or trusted adult will be needed to accompany the child in the pool. 30 minute class.
Paddlers (2-3 years)
Learn swim readiness and water safety through song, instruction and games. A parent or trusted adult will be needed to accompany the child in the pool. 30 minute class.
