Children’s Learn To Swim

Learn to swim at the 14th Street Y!

Whatever your level or age, we’ve got a program that’s perfect for you, at a great value.  All of our friendly instructors are WSI certified and ready to get you in the water!

Children learn the complex physical skills of swimming at different rates. Our program emphasizes effort as swimmers can spend a lifetime perfecting swim skills.  Based upon age and ability, children will work to acquire the following Red Cross Swim Skills: water safety, breath and buoyancy control, front & back float, streamlining and basic stroke mechanics for all 4 competitive strokes.

Educational Alliance proudly supports COVID-19 vaccination. All 14Y employees, including fitness and swim instructors, are fully vaccinated.
