AQUATICS
Grab your goggles, take a breath and jump right in.


Ever since the YMCA opened the world's first indoor swimming pool in 1885 it has been a pioneer in water activities for people of all ages. Certified lifeguards always guard our pools.

Enjoy recreational or lap swimming during our open/lap swim times, as well as a wide variety of instructor-led activities like adult, youth and preschool swimming lessons, scuba and water exercise. The YMCA offers a variety of certification courses such as Lifeguard, First Aid, and CPR certifications. All courses are lead by certified instructors.

Our water exercise courses cover a wide variety of needs that range from general aqua aerobics that use water as resistance to arthritis programs designed to improve flexibility and strength. Enhance your swimming skills through private one-on-one lessons, gain SCUBA diving training and participate in our own “Guard Start” program.
