Swimming Lessons

Swimming Lessons – Registration opens March 29th

The YMCA believes that learning to swim is a critical life skill. The YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth offers FREE swimming lessons for members of all ages! We are committed to reducing water-related injuries and encouraging more people to learn to swim and stay safe around water.

Swimming motivates people to strive for self-improvement, teaches goal orientation and cultivates a positive mental attitude and high self-esteem. The YMCA is a leader in teaching swimming. Thousands of individuals in Canada have been taught to swim through nationally-accredited YMCA swim programs. It’s never too late to learn!  We believe learning to swim is a critical life skill and that’s why the YMCA includes swimming lessons with every membership.
