Knowing how to swim can save your life — or even someone else’s. Taught by certified YMCA instructors, our swimming lessons develop lifelong skills that help your child to be safe in and around the water.

Group Swim Lessons

At the YMCA, we offer even more options for those wanting to learn how to swim. One weekly group swim lesson is included in YMCA of Oakville memberships for all ages! Explore below to find out which swim lessons are right for you and your family. Click here for our Swim Level Conversion Guide.

YMCA swim lessons and aquatics programs operate in 12 weeks sessions with a one week program break between sessions. Once members register into the swim program, aquatics staff will register your child automatically into the exact same day and time for the next swim level during the program break. No lessons will be offered during program break; however both pools will be available for Recreational Swims.
