With the Y, you can be assured that whatever activity you, your family or your child engages in — from Child Watch to sports to after-school programs and camp — you'll have a safe, positive environment to play, learn and grow.
Swimming at the Y is not only a fun activity the entire family can participate in but also a life-saving skill and lifelong sport that anyone can learn. We offer a swimming lesson program that is divided by skill level and taught by trained professionals that will ensure everyone from 6-months to adult will have a fun and safe experience in the pool.
At the Y, our staff, coaches and volunteers all share a singular vision of helping all youth reach their full potential in life. We leverage the excitement and passion around recreational and competitive programming to create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, develop a sense of team and connect with positive role models through youth sports. With programs like Day Camp, after-school activities, Learn & Play Centers, Active Kids and Saturday Night Live, we also make sure that kids can just be kids — playing, learning and growing.
