The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. But our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational and specialty aquatics
programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue. Programs and classes vary seasonally.
Swimming lessons are a valuable skill for kids at an early age. At the Y, we want your child to build confidence in their swimming abilities, and that starts with learning to swim. To view
