Teaching lifesaving skills
YMCA swim lessons for all ages

At the Y, we have swimming lessons for all ages. Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Y’s offer swim lessons, family swim, competitive swimming and many kinds of adaptive swim programs for kids. Everyone wants to safely enjoy the pleasures and relaxing time in the pool.

As a leader in drowning prevention, the YMCAs wants to remind you to be water smart from the start. Our progressive model of swimming instruction allows any individual to learn swimming fundamentals and build skills gradually. From water safety to swim teams and everything in between, let the YMCA become your swimming instructor!

These are exciting upgrades we are pleased offer our members from the funds we have raised from our capital campaign, not membership revenue.  Here are details of our ongoing facility upgrades:

Gymnasium: No longer the gym you remember! Up fitted with a new gym floor, glass backboards, energy efficient lights and trendy paint from top to bottom!

Steam Room:

The Best Steam Room in the country is open! Equipped with new tile from top to bottom, new sitting arrangement that has opened up the room greatly, new lighting that is NOT exposed to steam and the steam is powered by new steam generator called “Mr. Steam.”
