Child 6 to 12

Seal is for children 6-12 years old who have completed Otter or who have equivalent skills. In this level, your child will further develop the skills of gliding, kicking and submerging.

The second of four levels in our national YMCA Learn to Swim program, Seal teaches your child how to stay safe in the water and to develop their swimming skills. During these classes, children will also select from an optional list of skills to learn over the course of the session.

Seal is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA swim instructor who will encourage the children to build their confidence in the water.

To learn more or register for continuous swim lessons, please contact your membership services team.
