Group Swim Lessons (Ages 4-12)

Ventura

VIEW

For youth with special needs, we have created Adaptive Swim Lessons. These lessons are set during a quieter time of day at the pool to help reduce distractions and overstimulation. In small groups, swimmers are taught the fundamentals of swimming, while focusing on water safety. Classes are structured to help create a safe and fun environment.

We offer two different class formats:

  • Parent/Child Classes: A parent is required to be in the water with their child and will lead their child through the activities with support from the instructor. This class format offers many benefits such parent/child interaction and the activities can be tailored to the level of the student.
  • Child-Only Classes: Only the child will be in the water with the instructor (no parent in the water). This allows for more independence in the swim lesson is is recommended for those who have done swim lessons previously and who can stand in 3.5 feet of water safely.

There will be no class meetings on Friday, November 11th and Friday, November 25th as the Y will be closing early in observance of the holiday.
