Bobbers, part of the YMCA L’il Dipper program, 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.
Bobbers is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA Swim Instructor who will help your children feel comfortable in the water without a parent, however parents must be ready to get in the water and participate if the instructor deems necessary.
**** Due to COVID-19 – All Swimming Lesson Participants in a preschool level, Otter, or Seal class must be accompanied by their parent or guardian in the water. ****
