Child 6 to12
Star 2 is for children 6-12 years old who have completed Star 1 or who show an equivalent skill level. At this level we introduce breaststroke and continue to help kids refine their stroke technique and increase their endurance.
In the second level of our YMCA Star Program, Star 2, we continue to encourage your child to build on the optional skills they selected in Star 1. Your child may choose to try something new, or continue to focus on one area — the choice is theirs! Optional skills include competitive swimming, lifesaving, synchronized swimming, aquatic fitness, and water polo.
Star 2 is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA Swim Instructor who will share their passion for swimming.
To learn more or register for continuous swim lessons, please contact your membership services team.
