Youth Swim Programs

At the Y, we offer swim lessons (for all ages and abilities), family swim, competitive swimming and adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment.

2016_bestofwinner_iconSwim lessons not only keep kids safe in the water, they can also be the first step in learning to lifeguard, being part of a swim team and exercising through lap swimming.

Our experienced Y instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance and social skills, while guiding students with praise and encouragement.

We’re proud to have been named the 2016 Best of Winner for Best Swim Instruction!

We offer FREE swim testing at all neighborhood Y locations in Jacksonville, Fleming Island, Orange Park, Fernandina Beach, St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra Beach and Baker County whenever our pools are open.

Mission Statement: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
