Learn to Swim
Since the YMCA first introduced a national learn to swim program in 1910, we have been leaders in the aquatic instructional field. YMCA Aquatic programs are unique in that they focus on promoting health and enhancing appreciation of our five core values: caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and excellence. As participants advance through our program, they have opportunities to learn group skills, experience positive peer interactions and above all have fun!
