Aquatics

swim-girls-diveSwimming is a life-long skill that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. Among its many benefits, swimming teaches children life lessons of sport and sportsmanship, so they can learn how to work well with teammates and coaches and how to deal with winning and losing. Swimming also motivates participants to strive for self-improvement, teaches goal orientation, and cultivates a positive mental attitude and high self-esteem.

Group Lessons

Students will improve swimming skills, build confidence in the water, and learn personal safety by certified aquatics instructors who guide with praise and encouragement. Financial assistance is available for swim lessons so that everyone in the Summerville community has the opportunity to build confidence and develop the whole person – spirit, mind and body. It’s what makes us different from any other exercise facility.




















 

Private Lessons

One-on-one swim instruction tailored to fit your individual needs and goals. We recognize that some people, such as those with certain disabilities and those who have had a negative experience with water, may benefit from one-on-one instruction. Each package includes a total of 6, 30-minute lessons administered based on their ability and preference.

Aquatics Training

The Y is committed to water safety and uses a comprehensive, rigorous training program to prepare lifeguards to be vigilant and effectively guard pools, lakes or waterparks.  YMCAs believe strongly in ongoing training and development, regularly offering in-service training and facility-specific instruction for their lifeguards.  Below are the training programs that the Summerville Family YMCA offers to the community.

Tidalwaves Swim Team

The Summerville Tidalwaves Swim Team is a competitive, developmental swim team for athletes ages 4-18. We will strive to build and maintain a superior community-based athletic program that provides a sound competitive environment. We will emphasize individual and team growth through comprehensive knowledge of the sport, the spirit of sportsmanship and the effort to do our best.
