Welcome to the YMCA Aquatics home page!

We are extremely honored that you have chosen the YMCA as your and your child’s aquatics outlet.  We pledge to give you our best and to serve your child in swim, character and ministry.

YMCA Aquatics has two goals…

  1. To provide top-notch water training programs that are designed to assist each participant with the growth and development of their individual skill levels while teaching confidence in the water
  2. To use the avenue of aquatics to teach and incorporate the character values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

This mission and message is accomplished by our aquatics staff in many forms through a variety of youth and adult swim programs.  So be sure to check out each aquatics category to find a program that fit your or your child’s needs and on behalf of the YMCA, thanks for letting us serve you and your child through swim.
