Our swim lessons are Kendall County’s best way for your child to learn to swim safely! Learning to swim is the most important thing your child can do when it comes to reducing the risk of drowning. The Fox Valley Family YMCA is proud to offer swim lessons following the newest Y USA curriculum. The Y USA Swim Lesson Program helps adults, children and families learn an important life skill and supports them in gaining the knowledge, ability, and stamina to become strong and confident swimmers. 

The Y's Aquatics Department is only offering Parent/Child swim lessons at this time. Our staff is working diligently to add additional group swim lesson offerings to the public in the safest manner.
