Generations of families have learned to swim at the Williams YMCA. This tradition continues in the Avery County Aquatic Center where instruction by our trained teachers gets you motivated and teaches you new techniques.
Personal swimming instructions are one-on-one classes for ages 3 and up. They’re a great opportunity for those who are struggling in group lessons and want to catch up or move ahead in their class. Sessions consist of four half hour lessons and are scheduled with you in mind. Once you sign up, you will be contacted by an instructor to coordinate times. If you have any questions please contact Matthew Hitechew, Aquatics Coordinator, at (828) 737-5500.
Private swim lessons are on a first come, first serve basis:
No matter what your level of ability or age, we have a group swimming class that will fit your needs. The Y is continually adding new programs to make your swimming experience even better. Each session begins the first Monday of the month and classes are held Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Once 3 people have signed up, your group class is ready to begin!
