Downtown YMCA

Ages 3-5 years


The third level of our YMCA L'il Dipper program, Bobbers, is for children 3-5 years old who are new to swimming. Children are encouraged to attend without a parent. In Bobbers, we'll continue to introduce fun activities in the water to activate the movements that will eventually lead to swimming. By the end, your child will be comfortable having their face in the water, and will have learned basic movements while being supported.


The fourth level of our YMCA L'il Dipper program, Floaters, is for children 3-5 years old who have completed Bobbers or equivalent. In Floaters, we introduce floating and gliding, and continue to practice other movements. Through structured activities and play, children will also become comfortable submerging themselves under water. Children are encouraged to attend independent of their parent.
