The goal of the Riverbrook Regional Y Youth Swimming Lesson Program is to develop competent and confident swimmers. Children are introduced to the water through a graduated series of lessons developed and standardized by the YMCA of the USA and USA Swimming. The program is divided into age groups, and children move through the levels at their own pace as their abilities and skills grow. Advanced lessons and team programs are available for those with particular enthusiasm for swimming.
