SWIM LESSON POLICIES & GUIDE LINES

• Register in person or over the phone at the Pav YMCA.

• All participants will be tested on their first day to assess their abilities. Classes are formed based on participants’ skill and age. We reserve the right to combine skill and age as needed. We also may move your child to another level as they see fit.

• If the Pav YMCA cancels lessons due to pool contamination, weather, or other acts of God beyond staff control, we will do our best to offer an on deck safety lesson.

• We cannot guarantee a specific instructor for a class. We recommend private lessons if your child would learn best with a specific instructor
 

JR. POSEIDON (5-15 years)

Having mastered the fundamentals, swimmers are introduced to the four competitive swimming strokes as well as rescue skills and healthy lifestyle habits. Students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.


~Due to COVID-19, an adult must accompany any first time swimmer in the water. Once the swimmer has been successfully assessed by the instructor, and deemed able to be swim without supervision, an adult will no longer be required to be in the water with the swimmer.
