YMCA’s have been teaching people to swim for more than a century.
Did you know that modern swim instruction and swim safety programs were invented at the YMCA? Maybe that’s why so many people have learned to swim at the Y, and continue to come back to enjoy our outstanding facilities.
Here at the Fayette County Family YMCA we offer Parent/Child, Pre-School, Youth and Adult swim lessons! We also have our own Tsunami Swim Team for youth ages 18 and under!

Adult Swim Lessons
Beginner: This class is designed for adults who can not swim at least 25 feet (about 1/3 of the length of the lap pool) on their own but would like to work on getting adjusted to the water. Focus is on the basics of elementary backstroke and freestyle. Swimmers will continue to work on endurance, confidence, and treading water. Ideal for those that are afraid of the water but have never had any formal training.
Intermediate: For adults who can already swim 25 yards (1 lap) on their own. Focus on the development of strength and endurance as well as improving freestyle, elementary backstroke, and breaststroke. Instructor will also provide stroke analysis and specific training techniques.
