Why Learn to Swim at the YMCA? Our Mission

Swimming is a unique sport and it is the only sport that can potentially save lives, therefore our mission at the YMCA Fylde Coast is to make sure every child gets the opportunity to learn to swim in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment.

We offer a comprehensive programme of swimming lessons for children aged 3+. All of our lessons follow the all-inclusive ASA National Plan for Teaching Swimming, taking the non-swimmer from their first entry into the water to developing confidence and competence. Our swim lesson programme is covered under our Y:Youth membership.

Not only will your child receive instruction from highly trained ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) qualified swimming teachers, but your child will also receive…

  • Free assessments
  • The complete Y:Youth junior membership package!

All are included for only £27 per month. Join online today!

We offer swimming lessons at the following sites. Tap the links below for site contact details.

What are the benefits of YMCA Swimming Lessons?

Our unique development pathways allow your child to continue their swimming journey beyond the ASA plan and enter into a choice of exit routes including learning valuable lifesaving skills through our Rookie Lifeguard programme (8-14 yrs), nurturing talent through our competitive pathways and much more, including full access to the Y:Youth membership.
