Private Swim Lessons are a great supplement or alternative to our Group Swim Lessons.


Confident Kids, Strong Swimmers

We offer one on one instruction that lasts for 30 mins and is completely based on the individual’s needs and goals. It’s for everyone from non-swimmer to expert to someone with special needs. Lessons are offered all times of the day and 7 days of the week.

Please Note: In some cases, an adult parent/guardian may be required to be in the water with Child. Please contact the YMCA location you wish to attend for more information.

Meet Our Instructors:

We've got a great team of instructors at each of our Branches ready to help you or your child progress in their swimming skills!

Chino: Alyssa Schemel 

Skill Expertise: Hello, I work with all kids aging from 3 to 15 years old. I mainly specialize in teaching free style, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. But I can confidently teach children how to begin to swim all the way into rules for competitive swim team. I look forward to working with you and your children. 

Chino: Senna Forkner

Skill Expertise: Hello, I hear your looking for a swim instructor. Look no further. I am the one. I am experienced with 3-years of teaching from ages of four and up and have experience with water polo. I played college Water Polo for two years at Mt. SAC. I am enthusiastic but stern. Safety is my fist concern but a swimmer is not going to learn without a little bit of fun and encouragement. Hope to see you soon!

Upland: Thomas Llama

Skill Expertise: Hi, my name is Thomas. I have been teaching swim lessons since 2018 and would love to help you achieve your goals in the water. I have experience working with all ages and ability levels. Safety and confidence are essential skills I encompass in all the swim lessons I teach. Looking forward to working with you and your families soon!

Upland: Jossie Flores

Skill Expertise: Hello! I’ve been swim instructing and coaching at the Y for roughly two years now and have worked with swimmers of all ages and abilities! My intention is to welcome all swimmers into lessons with an open and safe environment and empower them to set or progress their personal/athletic goals. I feel confident in my ability to swim instruct a wide range of goals; from parents who want themselves or their children to learn swim safety, to those who want to advance their competitive swimming skills and grow more confidence in the water. Thank you and I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

Upland: Kaylee Cassaro
