The next session of Learn to Swim Program at the Little Falls Youth & Family Center (YMCA) will begin September 27, 2021.

Classes will meet once a week for three weeks on Tuesday or Thursday evenings. Instruction is offered for all ages and skill levels, from infants and toddlers to Red Cross Levels 1 through 5.

Infant and toddler lessons will provide water adaptation skills and socialization opportunities for children ages six months and up. An adult must accompany all children in the water for the infant and toddler.

American Red Cross Levels 1 and 2 students will be taught elementary aquatic skills which they would build on as they progress through the Learn to Swim levels. Students will also strive to achieve success with fundamental skills and mark the beginning of true locomotion skills.

Levels 3, 4, and 5 will learn to demonstrate stroke development, improvement, and refine strokes so students swim with more ease, efficiency, and power.

The Little Falls Youth & Family Center (YMCA) Aquatics Director and Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructor, Lisa Sarto will instruct lessons.

Class sizes are limited and pre-registration is required. Previous session participants are not automatically enrolled and must re-register.

Swim Scholarships are available through Uncle Walt’s Swim Scholarship Program to register or to obtain more information please contact the Little Falls Youth & Family Center (YMCA) at 823-1740.
