Thanks to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, we are proud to offer free swim lessons at the Wallingford Family YMCA. 

Funding is provided by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) administered by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).

We offer swim lessons for youth 6 months and up for all levels. Based on availability, qualified participants will be able to take any of our small group swim lessons at no cost. Swim lessons at the YMCA provide important life skills that could save a life, and provide benefits for a lifetime. Instructors are highly trained in our nationally recognized swim lesson curriculum. Students learn personal water safety & achieve basic swimming competency.

To qualify, participants must be aged 17 or under AND meet ONE of the follow criteria:

  • Be eligible for SNAP benefits
  • Recommended to the program by a State Agency or Pupil Service on behalf of the Board of Education

If you have any questions about whether you qualify, please reach out to Meg O’Connor.
