The YMCA of Greater Moncton will close both of their fitness facilities as of January 6, 2021 based on the decision of the province of New Brunswick to revert the entire province to the Orange Alert Level due to the recent increase of positive COVID-19 cases. We will remain closed until we return to the Yellow Alert Level.
Star 1 is for children 6-12 years old who have completed the Swimmer level in our Learn to Swim program. In this class, kids will learn to use the whip kick on their back and the egg-beater motion for treading water. We will help your child continue to develop the front and back crawl technique and endurance.
As the first level of our YMCA Star Program, Star 1 also introduces your child to other aspects of swimming. Kids select new skills they would like to learn from a list that includes competitive swimming, lifesaving, synchronized swimming, aquatic fitness and water polo.
Star 1 is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA Swim Instructor who will guide your child through each lesson.
