Aquatics

AT THE Y, WE BELIEVE THE ABILITY TO SWIM IS A CRITICAL LIFE SKILL

The goal of the YMCA’s Aquatics Department is to provide a positive aquatic experience. We help build self-esteem through accomplishments, develop an awareness of safety through the practice of skills, and instill the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. All of the programs are progressive, building upon basic skills and progressing toward mastery of techniques, and eventually toward other aspects of aquatics and the potential for lifelong involvements in aquatic programs.
