SHYC Junior Swimming is postponed indefinitely for summer 2020 due to COVID-19. 

Welcome to SHYC Swimming Lessons!

Swimming lessons are offered for children 4 to 13 years old. Lessons/groups will be assigned by age, experience, gender and/or social groupings. Lessons will be offered by the session (4 weeks) or for the full season (8 weeks). We will work to accommodate sailing and tennis times. Class groupings, pool locations, and times will be emailed to all parents in June and posted at the club for Opening Day. Students should come to lessons with their bathing suits, towel, and goggles, with sunscreen pre-applied.  Swim Lessons are Tues, Wed, and Thurs. Register Online.

Note – To take swim lessons, swimmers must be 4yrs old by August 31st of this year and Potty-Trained.
