Aquatics

The YMCA has long been America’s favorite swimming instructor. Whether just learning how to swim, improving strokes or taking water exercise classes, members are in safe hands with our certified swimming instructors and lifeguards.

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. Many of our locations offer indoor and outdoor pools, providing aquatics opportunities all year long.
