A branch of the YMCA of Silicon Valley


Swim Lessons at the Y help keep kids safe and teach essential life skills.

The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. But our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty aquatics programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports. Programs and classes vary by location.

The South Valley Family YMCA uses national aquatic program guidelines and certified instructors. For details, please call us at 408-226-9622, email us, or visit our branch.

Swim Lessons at South Valley Family YMCA

For more than 130 years, the Y has been the nation’s leading provider of swim lessons and has helped children of all ages improve their swimming skills, learn water safety and build relationships with others – all while having fun!

Whether your child is taking his/her your first dip in the water, or hoping to perfect his/her stroke, we’re confident we have the right program for you.

All of our instructors have been trained according to national YMCA swim lesson standards and are certified in CPR, AED and First Aid. In addition to helping your child learn all four strokes, our instructors also embrace the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility and model behaviors that help children grow into caring and responsible adults.

Now is the perfect time to ensure your child develops a vital life skill that will help him/her learn how to achieve goals, gain confidence and be a team player in the pool and beyond.

In the spring we also offer Safety Around Water (formerly SPLASH), to teach children who would otherwise have limited or no access to swim education, learn basic swimming skills and water safety practices. Learn more.
