Aquatics

swim-mom-boy-hugging

The YMCA has long been America’s favorite swimming instructor. Whether just learning how to swim,  improving strokes or competitive swim, Y members are in safe hands with our certified swimming instructors and lifeguards.

Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. The aquatics programs at the Y are about more than just the techniques and skills; they are about building friendships, developing self-esteem and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime.

Please use the search feature below to find swim lessons for babies, youth and adults, private swim lessons, lifeguard classes and more!

Contact Rick Simonds with any questions on our Aquatics programs.


Swim Lessons

The purpose of the Y Swim Lessons Program is to develop competency in swimming along with confidence and endurance.  The goals of the program are to teach personal safety, personal growth and stroke development in a values-based environment.  Your child will be advanced to the next level only when he or she proficiently and safely performs the skills within his or her level. We teach individually to each child to advance their skills. We expect each child to learn and progress at his or her own rate.
