Open Swim

Lap swim and recreational swim are great ways to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle in a fun and safe environment.

Water Exercise & Aerobics

Our water exercise classes are a fun way to use the resistance and buoyancy of the water to improve cardiovascular fitness, strength and flexibility.

Swim Lessons

Parent & Child

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness. Parents learn about water safety and drowning prevention.

Preschool Swim Lessons

Children learn water safety, basic swimming competency and progress through levels as they develop skills.

School-Age Child

Students learn personal water safety, achieve basic swimming competency, and progress to learn about eh four competitive swimming strokes.


Teens progress through YMCA swim levels, from entering the water confidently to refining their strokes.


Choose from different levels of classes, beginning with water safety and swimming competency, to building and refining stroke techniques.

Private Swim Lessons

We understand that group lessons aren’t for everyone. For those who prefer one-on-one time with a YMCA swim instructor, we offer private lessons.
