“I can swim the whole way across the pool!”
Hearing those excited words coming from a beaming child is about as rewarding as it gets. The kids don’t know that they’ve also learned to be safe in the water, to follow instructions, to develop new skills, to gain confidence and to make friends. But we do. The Y offers swim lessons year-round for every age - even adults (it’s never too late!). We can’t wait to meet your little swimmer.

We will set goals and work to achieve swimming success.
