The Swimming Experts

To some, we’re virtually synonymous with swimming—and for good reason. Since the first YMCA swimming bath opened in 1885, we’ve been a pioneer in swimming education. Today, the YMCA has literally taught millions of people to swim, and is the largest collective operator of swimming pools in the world.

That’s not all. Our instructors are all YMCA certified, and our student-instructor ratio is lower than national guidelines. Of course, as part of every class we emphasize our four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.

Something For Everyone

Whether you’re just getting your feet wet, or you’re an accomplished swimmer looking to improve, chances are we have something tailored to you. Our wide range of classes—from toddler to adult, group to private—will help you make the most of your time in the water. To learn more about our Aquatics programs, view our Winter Program Guide.

Our Pool

Our six lane, 25 yard swimming pool is available for lap and open swim. Toys and flotation devices may be used during Family Fun Nights and preschool time. Pool schedules with open/lap times may be found at the Front Desk or by viewing our pool schedule. A one mile swim in our pool is 35.2 laps.
