Swimming Lessons for Youth and Adults
New this session! Coach Kyaw & Coach Win will teach swimming lessons to students ages 3-5, and students ages 6-10 who are not able to swim currently. Children will be encouraged to get comfortable in the water and to eventually put their heads under water, blow bubbles, and practice kicking. The classes will take place mostly in the small pool and move into the main pool as children become more comfortable in the water.

Coaches will also offer beginner swimming lessons to students and adults ages 16 and up. If you have always wanted to learn to swim but never had the opportunity, now is your chance to learn in a safe environment with ISY’s own expert coaches.

All lessons will take place on Saturdays beginning November 30 and run through February 21. Please register HERE for swimming lessons (class sizes are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis).
