Lifelong Skills

Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Our Youth Swim programs are focused on keeping kids safe in and around water while developing confidence and skills that last a lifetime. Kids can explore the water through swim lessons, recreation, swim clubs, competitive swim teams and water safety programs year-round at the Y.

Pass the Test, Lose the Vest

We want your swimming experience to be fun and safe at the Y. Visit our blog for an overview of our swim testing procedures and pool rules.

Swim Lessons Build Confidence - Adrien's Y Story

Desmond's Story

Before Desmond knew how to swim, “It felt like there was a shark in the water,” he said. At the Y, kids like Desmond overcome fear and learn safety and strokes to make swimming part of a healthy lifestyle.

Now, “It feels like I’m really bonded with the water, and it’s like a soothing peace,” Desmond said.

Help Kids Learn to Swim

Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death in children ages 1-14. But with your support, we can change this statistic and provide more kids in our community life-saving swim lessons and water safety programs.
