As the largest provider of swim lessons in Los Angeles, the Y has swim lessons for every age and ability. Choose from weekday, weekend or evening classes for youth and adults. If you prefer, we also offer private lessons!


Members receive Early Registration & Special Pricing on Swim Lessons!

Parent & Child

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness. Parents learn about water safety and drowning prevention.

Preschool Swim Lessons

Children learn water safety, basic swimming competency and progress through levels as they develop skills.

School-Age Child

Students learn personal water safety, achieve basic swimming competency, and progress to learn about the four competitive swimming strokes.


Teens progress through YMCA swim levels, from entering the water confidently to refining their strokes.


Choose from different levels of classes, beginning with water safety and swimming competency, to building and refining stroke techniques.

Private Swim Lessons

We understand that group lessons aren’t for everyone. For those who prefer one-on-one time with a YMCA swim instructor, we offer private lessons.
