The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years.
But, our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty aquatics programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports.
The Y offers a wide range of swimming options for the whole family. Programs and classes vary by location.
Benefits of Swimming:
Swimming builds self-confidence and gives the opportunity for kids and adults to discover what they can achieve. We offer classes beginning at 6 months of age, all the way to adults.
Swimmers are divided into ability groups and our trained instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance and social skills while guiding students with praise and encouragement.
