YMCAs have been teaching people to swim for more than a century. In YMCA aquatics programs, children learn to be safe around water and they feel the sense of accomplishment that comes with learning something new.  We offer swim lessons year round, so it’s never too late to start learning.

Current Session: December 4 – December 16
Next Session:  January 8 – February 3
