Adult Swim Lessons

You’re never too old to learn how to swim! Or maybe you just want to brush up on your stroke techniques or generally feel more confident in the water. Whatever the reason, join us for swim lessons! We offer private lessons for adults to focus specifically on your goals.

Competitive Swim Team

Swim Team/Stroke Development Classes: The YMCA is home to a year- round competitive swim team for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Our team competes in USA Swim Meets. There is also a summer league. Stroke development classes help youth to transition from swim lessons to making the swim team.

Recreational Swim Club

The recreational swim program is available for youth ages 7-16 (age 6 only if skills are proficient). Swimmers will participate with others similar in abilities and goals. Swimmers will learn proper stroke mechanics and race skills for all four strokes (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle), develop water and land-based fitness levels, and participate in team building activities designed to encourage friendship, teamwork and confidence.
