Swimming and Aquatics

The YMCA is the place where many people will begin their journey on becoming and staying active and developing healthy habits that will continue throughout their lives. And, the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it's gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in aquatics at the Y is about building the whole person from the inside out.

Parent/Child Swim Lessons, Preschool Swim Lessons, Youth Swim Lessons, Private Swim Lessons

The YMCA is a national leader in swim instruction and water safety. YMCA aquatics programs are designed to teach personal water safety and swimming skills to everyone. Classes arrange swimmers broadly into age groups and then by skill level as kids progress through the instruction program. Our progressive-swim instruction method uses a problem-solving, guided discovery teaching approach in a positive and caring environment. Please check out our program guide for a complete list of swim classes.

Lap Lane Schedule

Lap swim offers swimmers a great cardiovascular workout. Even a few laps can have a positive impact on your well-being. Whatever pace you work at, come enjoy our relaxing waters and get healthier at the same time. Every effort is made so that at least one lap lane is reserved for lap swim at all times. Please check out our pool schedule for lap lane openings.

Water Exercise

The pools is great for exercise because the water offers resistance while reducing the impact of land-based exercises. Water fitness classes are a fun way to exercise, and the low-impact workout builds strength and flexibility for people of all ages. Please check out or current program guide for a list of water exercise programs.
