Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Our Y offer swim lessons (for all ages), family swim, competitive swimming and swim teams, and many kinds of adaptive swim programs so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment.

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

Water Aerobics

Swimming. This form of water exercise can increase cardiovascular health, joint health, and upper and lower body strength.  Swimming is a great exercise for a low-impact aerobic activity.

Lap Swim

Lap Swimming Tips: Please enter the pool from the shallow end. To avoid accidents, when entering an occupied lane, please get the first swimmer’s acknowledgment that you are there. Please get kickboards, pull buoys, etc. before entering the pool.

Directions for Adult Lap: If there are 1 or 2 swimmers in a lane, they may elect to split the lane in half. The entrance of a third person immediately changes the lane to “circle” swimming format.

Speed: Please choose a lane with swimmers that most nearly match your speed.

Lifeguard Classes

Throughout the year the YMCA offers courses to certify lifeguards. Please contact your local Y for more information.
