These lessons are for infants and toddlers ages 6-36 months and their parents every Thursday evening for 4 lessons

from 5:15pm-5:45pm. This water introduction program helps the parent and the child get used to the water and

see the pool as fun. Parents and children play games that introduce basic, introductory water skills such as blowing

bubbles, breath control, kicking and floating. The class focuses on water orientation and encourages parents and infants to

trust each other in the water. One session includes 4 lessons. The cost is $30 for members and $55 for potential members.

Lifeguards are always on the pool deck during swim lessons and babies must wear a swim diaper. A parent or guardian

must accompany the child in the water. Come by the Welcome Center or click the link below to sign up for our next session!

Second grade swim


"Helping make Cleveland County water wise!" 


The Second Grade Water/Safety program invites all second grade classes in Cleveland County to join the Y in a week of swim and water safety lessons. The Y sees the potential in every child, and strives to offer programs that will impact generations to come! The world is comprised of 71% water, and we believe that everyone should be able to not only be safe around the water, but also have the skills to enjoy the water as well! If your school is not participating in this program, call the aquatics office today to learn more about how your child can be a part of this great program! And if your child has participated this year, we hope that you will use the 50% off coupon that each child received for participating, and check out all of our other great aquatics programs! Thank you for helping make Cleveland County, water wise!
