As the community's leader in swim instruction, the Shasta Family YMCA delivers swim lessons and water safety instruction to hundreds of children every year, helping swimmers of all ages gain confidence in the water, overcome fears, and build skills to last a lifetime The Y doesn't just focus on swimming fundamentals but also on building the whole person – from the inside out.  

Group swim lessons are specifically tailored to the participant's age, swimming ability, level of physical development, and confidence in the water. The Y keeps a low instructor-to-student ratio to ensure every child gets plenty of personal attention. Classes taught by certified swim instructors and are held in one of our two heated pools.
