SWIM CLASS FAQ

How do I know what stage my child is at?

Please click here for a YMCA Lesson Selector - If you need further assistance, please call the Aquatics Department. Or set up a FREE evaluation with our Aquatics Department.

When can I sign up for group swim lessons? 

Registration for classes generally opens 2 weeks before the session starts for members and 1 week for non-members. There is no rollover registration. All classes have limited availability, so make sure to register ASAP.

What is the make-up policy?

We do offer one makeup class during a session. This makeup MUST be scheduled in advance w/ the Aquatic Director and must take place during that session - no exceptions.

What if I’m sick/have to cancel?

Children who have been ill should be kept at home. This is in the best interest of their health as well as the health of other class participants and the instructor. Unfortunately, non-attendance for any reason does not entitle you to a refund. 

What is the instructor-to-student ratio?

Swim starters class is 1:12

Pre-school class 1:5

School Age class 1:6

Where can I watch swim lessons?

We pick the students up in the lobby and there are tv monitors so you can watch your kids in both the shallow and deep end.

Who do I contact to schedule a make-up?

Please email JKeavney@rocklandymca.org the week prior to your absence to schedule a make-up.

Where can I change my child?

If you and your child are the same sex, or the child is under the age of 5, you can use the according locker rooms. There is also a family changing room in the lobby for ages 5+ and/or different sex.
