Swimming is a vital skill that makes life safer and more fun. Over the years at the Y, we have taught thousands of children and adolescents to swim, which has helped to minimize the risk of drowning in our community. YMCA swim lessons build self-esteem, confidence and fitness.
Experienced instructors offer group and private swim lessons for all ages and abilities at Bridgewater, Hillsborough, Somerset Hills and Somerville YMCAs. Swim lessons are offered year-round. You will find an online registration button with each class description below.
Additionally, Safety Around Water, a free 4-week water safety course offered Fridays in May, is available at every Somerset County branch. Courses are taught by certified instructors who teach children two sets of skills that will reduce the risk of drowning and give them confidence in and around water. Learn more.
