Swim, Sports and Play

Did you know that basketball and volleyball were invented by early YMCA leaders?


The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. But our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty aquatics programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports. Programs and classes vary by location.

Youth Sports

The goal of the Youth Sports program is to help the child grow to his/her fullest potential in mind, body, and spirit. Activity helps the body grow; thinking advances the mind; and belief makes our spirit grow. We honor the core Y values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.

Youth Activities and Programs

At the Y kids love to play in all types of settings. Dance, sing, draw and more with us!


Aquatics and Sports programs vary by branch. For details, contact the YMCA nearest you.
