Did you know that the YMCA invented group swim lessons? 

The YMCA has been providing group swim lessons for over 100 years. Swim Lessons provide important life skills that could save your life and will certainly benefit your mind and spirit as well as health over your lifetime.

Safety is our Priority

All of our YMCA aquatics instructors and lifeguards are trained in First Aid, CPR, AED and life-saving techniques. Our lifeguards are tested and trained on their abilities on a monthly basis. You can be confident that you and your family are in good hands with our staff! Your safety is of the upmost importance to us. We have a Swim Policy known as "Test, Mark, Protect" to ensure the safety of our swimmers!
