Swimming is a vital skill that makes life safer and more fun. The YMCA has a long history of teaching swim lessons and is credited for being the first to develop a group swim instruction program in 1909. Over the years, at Somerset County YMCA, we have taught thousands of children, adolescents and adults to swim, which has helped to minimize the risk of drowning in our community.
Experienced instructors offer group and private swim lessons for all ages and abilities at Bridgewater, Hillsborough, Somerset Hills and Somerville YMCAs. Swim lessons, offered year-round, build self-esteem, confidence and fitness. What's New
We have come a long way since that first group lesson, and we’re excited to present the latest upgrades to you. Our new swim curriculum is based on extensive research and is focused on building strong, secure and confident individuals — we look forward to seeing swimmers advance more quickly through the stages.
