YMCA Swim Lessons

Classes are offered at various times of the year and participants are grouped according to skill level. Private lessons are available through out the year. We have small group swim lessons each summer starting in June. Click here for more info or come by the Y to sign up. 

Water Aerobics

Water aerobics combines the benefits of an aerobic workout with the added benefits of water.  Water serves three beneficial functions: the buoyancy

reduces much of the stress on joints during exercise, the water’s warmth helps if joints are arthritic or muscle soreness occurs in exercise, and water provides a natural resistance to motion--a required component for most exercise programs. All aerobics classes are free and unlimited to YMCA members. Non-members may pay for a daily all-day pass to the YMCA.

Life-guarding Classes

​We offer lifeguarding classes on an as needed basis.  Our next class will be March 10-12th. More info click here.
