Aquatics 2017-08-31T02:01:11+00:00

The Y has been teaching people to swim for more than a century. In YMCA aquatics programs children learn to be safe around water and gain the confidence that comes with learning something new. But our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction – we also provide recreational, competitive, fitness, and specialty aquatic programs for all ages and abilities. Swimming is an activity you can enjoy your whole life. Let the Y help your family discover the fun and great exercise of swimming!

Our indoor pool is kept at a comfortable 84.5 degrees with a lifeguard on duty any time the pool is open for use. Our shallow end is 3.5 feet deep while the maximum depth is 5 feet. The pool is equipped with a lift for those individuals requiring help into the pool.

SWIM LESSONS

Learning to swim at the Y is more than just stroke development. It’s a child-centered approach, where kids learn through play, hands-on exercises and creative repetition. The YMCA lesson curriculum is enhanced with YMCA character development emphasizing the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Children are taught in small groups in a progressive approach which allows each child to proceed at their own pace. When your child has mastered one level, they’re ready for the next. Each lesson encourages your child to feel good about themselves and what they’ve learned, and they can develop lifelong skills that can help them stay healthy.

The Y group swim lesson programs are offered year-round and include parent-child, preschool and youth group swim lesson classes as well as swimming lessons for all ages and abilities including those with autism or other disabilities. Sessions are six weeks in length and registration dates open two weeks prior to the start of the class. Private and semi-private swim lessons are available for families or children wanting additional attention at a time that is convenient for you. During the summer group swim lessons are held at Lytle Pool and the YMCA pool. The Y also offers a youth competitive swim team program.
