Swim year-round in our heated, indoor pools and swim with the folks that created group swim lessons!  Make sure you check out all the Aquatics Programs the YMCA offers at the following branches:

Safety Around Water

Be Water Smart From the Start!

Annually, over 3,500 American children are treated in the emergency due to a drowning-related incident. Approximately 75% of child drownings occur because of a lapse in adult supervision of less than five minutes. 

  • It takes less than one minute for a child to silently slip below the water's surface.

Swim Lessons

With a 150-year history of helping people learn to swim, the Y’s swimming classes are designed to teach this lifelong skill to kids and adults of all skill levels in a safe environment. Swimming is one of the most effective tools in developing the spirit, mind and body.
