Preschool 3 to 5
Divers is for children who are 3-5 years old and have completed Gliders or show an equivalent level of skill.
In Divers, children will combine all the skills they have learned so far to swim on their front and back unaided for a distance of 10 metres. Your child will also learn to jump into and float in deep water unassisted.
Divers is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA swim instructor who will tailor the learning experience to your child's needs. Children are encouraged to attend without a parent.
To learn more or register for continuous swim lessons, please contact your membership services team.
