The aquatics programs at the Y are about more than just the techniques and skill; they are about building friendships, developing self-esteem and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime.  Swim lessons include Safety Around Water skills, teaching kids drowning prevention.

The pool and aquatics program areas open when the YMCA opens and close 30 minutes before the facilities close.
