Swim Lessons

Every day at the Y, children learn to swim. From safety swimming basics to enhanced stroke development, we help beginners become experts. Our kids are learning safety, building confidence, developing healthy habits, and most importantly, having fun!


  • Low student-instructor ratios allow for more individualized instruction.
  • A wide selection of skill-based groups and class times are available to fit all of your needs.
  • We serve children, starting at 6 months, and adults.
  • At West Cabarrus, we are prepared to serve children and adults with varying cognitive and physical abilities.
