Diamond Lake Youth Swimming:


Our program follows the American Red Cross Learn to Swim Program YMCA swim lessons as taught by the  YMCA of Southwest Michigan.   The program is designed for children of all ages, and as the student’s progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. Each level of our Learn-to-Swim class includes training in basic water safety and helping others in an emergency, in addition to stroke development.  All members and non-members of the DLYC will be required to sign a release form prior to participation.

Swimming skills must be assessed by the YMCA prior to placement in class.
