Aquatics - Spring 2 Programs

Spring 2 Programs in the pool at the Saratoga Springs Branch

YMCA swim lessons are more than stroke development. It’s a child centered approach, where children learn to have a life-long love for swimming. The children gain confidence, self-esteem and make new friends while developing listening and social skills. Children are taught in skill appropriate groups and progress at their own pace.

Members Only. Fee range; $35-$240
