YWCA swim lessons provide essential skills and knowledge that can save lives. They’re also a fantastic way to improve your physical health and enjoy yourself, regardless of skill or experience in the water. Set your own pace with our personal swim lessons — where you can achieve your fitness goals in a positive, safe and stress-free space.
Whether you’re a seasoned aquatic athlete or getting your feet wet for the first time, YWCA Minneapolis swimming lessons are right for you. We design our private and semi-private swim lessons to deliver thoughtful instruction that supports your success and helps you achieve your goals. Work with a private swim teacher to overcome fears, master techniques and unlock your full potential in the water.
With one-on-one private lessons, you can work on the exact skills you want to improve through individual instruction. Together, you and your instructor will create and execute a practice plan to make the most out of each lesson — while having some fun in the process. Video analysis is also available for Silver and Gold level students.
Semi-private lessons are available for two or three people to take swim lessons together. Students can customize the focus points of each lesson — allowing you to receive an educational experience that suits your group’s needs and goals. Video analysis is available for Silver and Gold level students. To participate in semi-private swim lessons, each swimmer must purchase their own semi-private package.
We have three levels of nationally certified instructors to fit your learning needs, schedule and budget. Instructor levels are determined by teaching, coaching and swimming experience, as well as certifications; levels are not related to the ability of the student. Lesson prices vary depending on the level of instructor you choose.
Each of our swim teachers combines inspiring instructive skill with a passion for helping students succeed. Count on them to nurture enthusiasm, progress and confidence in your party — no matter how ambitious your goals. With your personal instructor’s support, you’ll be well on your way toward conquering the water.
