THE YMCA IS THE NATION'S LEADER IN SWIM INSTRUCTION.

Swim lessons at Raritan Valley YMCA help swimmers of all ages improve their skills. Whether you’re an absolute beginner learning basic water skills, or preparing for competition-level swimming, Raritan Valley YMCA swim lessons boost your in-water abilities and safety knowledge. Classes are taught by caring YMCA instructors. Class participants are divided into skill levels and class size is such that the instructor can provide proper instruction.

TEACHING KIDS SAFETY AROUND WATER

In addition to swim skills, teaching proper water safety knowledge is also a core part of our aquatics mission!

"Kareem started here at Sunday swimming lessons and ended up at a national championship swim meet. We are so lucky to have found this program and have coaches and instructors who inspire our kids every day to be better than the day before. They taught them so much and went beyond to care for the swimmers. Their encouragement and constant motivation pushed them to heights I never thought possible. I hope The YMCA program inspires more future champions as it has inspired our four kids over the past 10 years. You’re awesome!"
