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.

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.
