SWIM LESSONS

Swim Lessons

Swimming is a fundamental life skill, and the Ardmore Family YMCA offers swim lessons each year. Water safety is our main focus, along with swim readiness, stroke development, and establishing a lifelong, healthy approach to water, exercise, and fun.

Private swim lessons are always available.  Group swim lessons will be advertised on our website and Facebook page as they become available.  Contact our aquatics program coordinator at ardmoreyaquatics@gmail.com for details about our swim program and adding your child to our ongoing group swim lesson waitlist.  

Mommy and Me (Ages 18 mo. - 3 yrs.)

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

Safety Around Water (Ages 3-5)

Designed to teach children to be secure and confident around the water, this class prepares the swimmer in basic water safety to help reduce the risk of drowning. Skills include safe water habits, underwater exploration, and how to swim to safety and exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

Swim Basics: Levels 1-3 (Ages 6+)

In Water Acclimation, Water Movement, and Water Stamina, students are taught the recommended skills: safe water habits, underwater exploration, and how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. Activities, games, and drills are utilized as students progress in this skill-based approach to swimming.

Swim Basics: Levels 4-6 (Ages 6+)

In Stroke Introduction, Stroke Development and Stroke Mechanics, swimmers are introduced to the four competitive swimming strokes as well as rescue skills and healthy lifestyle habits.

CHILD WATCH

Child watch hours are: Monday - Friday 8:30 AM - Noon, Saturday 8:45 AM - Noon, Monday - Thursday 4:00 PM - 7:30 PM.

Our child watch service provides supervised custodial care for children ages six weeks to 8 years old. Child watch is provided for children who are current members on a household YMCA membership. Child watch services may be purchased for $5.00 per hour for those with a day pass, membership types other than household, or visiting guests.

The following policies and procedures are set to ensure a safe and happy experience for those who are in our care.

Check In/Check Out Policies

  • An adult must sign in and sign out the child
  • Provide your workout location
  • Provide an immediate contact/cell number
  • Include any special instructions
  • Return after 1.5 hours. If there is a limited number of children in the child watch, it is the discretion of the child watch supervisor to permit you an extra 30 minutes of time.

Infants

Please provide the following:

  • Pre-made bottles
  • Diapers/wipes (staff will contact you by cellphone to change diaper)
  • Blankets

Behavior

  • If the child cries for more than 20 minutes, you will be called to child-watch. Biting, kicking, spitting at another child or staff member will not be tolerated, and parents will be contacted to remove the child. We reserve the right to discontinue services for poor behavior.

Illness

  • To limit the spread of illnesses, sick children are not permitted in child watch. Please do not bring your child if he or she shows symptoms such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or has been diagnosed with a contagious condition. If your child is too sick to attend school, they are too ill to be in child watch. We reserve the right to remove a child who shows symptoms of illness.

Restrooms

  • Child watch employees are not permitted to assist in restrooms; a child must go alone. If your child needs assistance, you will be notified by a YMCA staff member.

Snacks

  • Children are asked not to bring food or drinks, other than pre-made bottles, to child watch.
