Swimming the YMCA Way

The YMCA developed the first nationally- recognized aquatic programs in 1931, and has continued to train aquatic participants and leaders ever since. By fostering relationship building, YMCA aquatic programs create a positive atmosphere where members can both strive for and achieve their personal goals.

YMCA aquatic programs teach participants how to be safe in and around water and give them the sense of accomplishment that comes from learning something new. Learning to swim is more than just stroke development; it is about building confidence and self-esteem, and developing strong values in our participants. Our highly-qualified instructors teach children how to swim safely, helping them to overcome their fears and to develop lifelong skills.

Please refer to our Program Schedule for daily swim schedule and swim lesson times.
