We believe that swimming is an essential skill for kids of all ages. Our swim lesson program provides guidance and instruction tailored to the age and ability of every swimmer.
Our swim lessons are for YMCA of the East Bay members only. Lessons are also offered at our Downtown Berkeley and Oakland branches at different times throughout the year. Members can register for swim lessons at any available branch.
Currently, we're offering group lessons for kids ages 3-12 years old.

Refunds will be granted if requested 6 days or more prior to the start of the session. No refunds will be granted after this time period. A refund processing fee will be applied as follows: $10 for a credit card refund, $25 for a check or cash payment refund.
SWIM LESSON MAKEUP POLICY
The Y does not offer makeup lessons for missed swim classes. If your child misses class due to injury or illness, you may reach out to the aquatics director to discuss potential credit options. We respectfully request that students remain home if they are sick to protect the health and safety of other students and our staff.
