No matter your age or ability, you can learn to swim and improve your swimming skills at BLAIR REGIONAL YMCA.
Our YMCA’s trained and certified instructors cover swimming skills, stroke technique, and water safety in a friendly and encouraging environment. With a small instructor-to-student ratio, our swim lessons provide personal instruction in a fun atmosphere!
Infants and toddlers are introduced to the aquatic environment through exploration. We encourage them to enjoy themselves while learning about the water. As they learn to be comfortable in the aquatic environment, our young participants can develop swim readiness skills through fun activities and confidence-building experiences with a trusted adult present.
Adult guardians learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

The BRY does not currently offer packaged swim lessons.
The program will continue to provide the same outstanding quality as in the past. In addition, program staff will have a longer period of time to spend instructing your child and can therefore provide even better instructional consistency improving their swim skills until they succeed.
If your child is comfortable in the water (with or without flotation), and is comfortable being away from a parent, then they are ready for Swim School. Our Family Swim Lessons are designed to help grow comfort for younger students or for students who need more one-on-one time to be comfortable during lessons. If you need to transfer from one to the other after you have registered, please contact the Aquatics Department.
An active membership is not required, but our pricing structure is different for non-members. We encourage your child to have an active membership as there are so many great benefits by becoming a member, along with price savings for each monthly session.
System credits will be provided if BLAIR REGIONAL YMCA is unable to provide the minimum number of classes for the month. Bi-weekly participants are guaranteed 6 lessons, and weekly participants are guaranteed 3 lessons per month. These credits will be used for the following month’s fee. A student’s absence may be granted a credit in the case of extenuating circumstances provided they are submitted with proper documentation (e.g.: medical note).
Your child will progress and build new skills each week based on their individual performance. Our instructors will continually challenge and support their progress by continuing the repetition of certain skills until they succeed. Feel free to talk to your instructors about your student’s progress.
Easy! You can edit your payment details any time by stopping by the Welcome Desk or calling in at (814) 695-4467.
We will make every effort to place your child in a class, but we do pride ourselves on safety and therefore simply adding another participant to a lesson time may not be within our instructor to child class ratio window. Please be patient and we will contact you as soon as a spot becomes available.
Please reach out to the Aquatics Department with any additional questions: (814) 695-4467 (Extension 223).
