Welcome to Southlake Family Y Aquatics!

swimmerThe goal of the Southlake YMCA’s Aquatics Department is to provide a positive aquatic experience. We help build self-esteem through accomplishments, develop an awareness of safety through the practice of skills, and instill the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. All of the programs are progressive, building upon basic skills and progressing toward mastery of techniques, and eventually toward other aspects of aquatics and the potential for lifelong involvements in Aquatic Programs. Please register early. All classes fill up quickly and have an enrollment limit. Full payment is required at the time of registration.

We offer lap swim, open swim, swim lessons and a variety of aqua exercise. Review the current pool schedule.

Swim Lessons

YMCA swim classes focus on developing coordination, endurance, and self-confidence in swimmers of all ages. Classes will include flotation devices as needed and be conducted by a YMCA trained instructor. Parents are permitted to stay on deck and observe lessons on the first and last day of each session. During the remainder of the session, parents are asked to wait in the lobby so that the children may give their full attention to the instructor.

Our classes include:

  • BSA Swim Merit Lessons
  • BSA Water Days
  • Developmental Disabilities Swim Lesson
  • Parent/Child Interactive Class

    • This program is designed to provide an educational and safe environment for children with developmental differences. Water exercise has these benefits: improves flexibility, coordination, range of motion and regulation of breathing; strengthens, tones, and stretches the muscles without hurting vulnerable joints; low impact because it works with buoyancy, not gravity as on land; increases the child’s self-esteem because he/she is able to forget about his/her limitations while learning new behaviors, skills and learning excellent sensory play. The goals of the program is to increase the child’s self-esteem, strength, coordination and swim skills.
