Swim Lessons

swimming lessons

Swimming at the Y helps people thrive - in and out of the water. Swim lessons provide the opportunity to set goals and achieve success, learn water safety and enjoy swimming as a form of exercise. Through swimming lessons, swim teams, lap swimming and more, the Norfolk Family YMCA provides a safe environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities.

Online registration is unavailable; we want to ensure everyone is signing up for the correct level so lessons can run as effectively as possible. Call or stop in the Welcome Center to register!
