Our Classes & programs


safety around water

Swimming is one of life’s most essential skills: the ability to swim can help save your life or someone else’s life, while introducing you to a lifetime of healthy, enjoyable activity in the water. At the Y, our swim lessons help kids develop the skills they need to become strong, confident swimmers.
