Swimming is an activity you can enjoy your whole life. Let the Y help your family discover the exercise, sport and fun that is swimming!
From preschoolers to adults, we specialize in all aspects of water safety and lifelong swim skills ranging from overcoming fear of water to upper level stroke development. Learning to swim at the Y is about more than just stroke development. It's a swimmer-centered approach, where students learn through play, hands-on exercises and creative repetition. Children are taught in small groups with swimmers at their skill level. When ready, swimmers can apply their skills to upper level programs like swim team, lap swimming for exercise, lifeguard training and Masters Swimming.
Our swim teams develop good swimmers and great kids. Competitive swimming teaches skills for a lifetime. Our swimmers achieve success at all levels of competition. We provide a foundation for our athletes to excel based on their talent, skills and level of commitment. It is our goal to develop a lifelong love of the sport for all swim team members.
The Y offers American Red Cross classes and certifications for lifeguard training and re-certification, instructor training and recertification and instructor crossover/re-entry.
