Swim at the YMCA

Private and Semi Private Lessons

Private Lessons/Swim Specialty Programs 

Ages 3-Adult

The YMCA of Gloucester County offers, in place of our previous group lessons, private and semi-private lessons for a one on one instruction that is more focused on the swimmers’ goals and skills. Our private lessons are great for beginning swimmers who need more work on water acclimation and basic skills and for swimmers who need personal attention to fine-tune their techniques, or those looking to develop and improve skills they already have. Working with youth who are afraid of the water, need to work on skills to pass to the next levels, and/or are preparing for swim team. We help adults learn how to swim, improve their techniques for sport or fitness, or who need to pass a water based test.

Contact Becky at aquacoordinator@ymcagloco.org with questions.

Accomplished swimmers can pursue swim programming through the Y’s Recreational, Competitive, and Leadership Tracks.

The YMCA of Gloucester County is committed to protecting the children we serve. While we cannot eliminate all threats, we want to do what we can to ensure that the children in our care are safe. When entering the Y all members, participants and guests must have a valid picture ID which will be scanned through a national child abuse database. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access. We appreciate your cooperation.
