Swimming Classes and Teams

Swim Lessons for Toddlers, Teens and Teams!

At the Y, we have swimming lessons and diving lessons for all ages. Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Y’s offer swim lessons, family swim, master's swim lessons, competitive swimming and diving programs and many kinds of adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs. In addition, the YMCA has Splash programs. This is a four or five-day water safety program designed to help children and families learn basic swimming skills and safety habits in and around the water.

YMCA of the Suncoast Swimming


As a leader in drowning prevention, the YMCAs of Tampa Bay are teaming up with the Tampa Bay Rays to remind you to be water smart from the start. The Y offers a variety of swim safety programs for both children and adults. It's never too late to save a life. This summer, make the YMCA your home base for swim safety. Register for swim classes today.

Our progressive model of swimming instruction allows any individual to learn swimming fundamentals and build skills gradually. From water safety to swim teams and everything in between, let the YMCA become your swimming instructor!Learning how to swim isn’t just about encouraging your kids to get in the water. Learning to swim is about building skills that will help ensure their safety and encouraging a healthy activity they can participate in over a lifetime. The Y offers private and group swim lessons for ages 6 months to adults, developmental and competitive swim teams, and master’s swimming programs.

Swim Teams

We have competitive programs that focus on the development of all ages and abilities. Our trained coaches work to improve swimmers' skill level, endurance and to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our program embraces the YMCA core values and promotes progression at an individual level. Individual teams are organized by ability levels and are designed to help team members improve and refine the four competitive strokes, sets, starts and finishes. Our swimmers compete with other Y’s and swim clubs (like the Piranhas YMCA of the Suncoast Swim Team) at area meets.
