Swim, Sports & Play

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

Our sports programs develop more than skills—they develop character. We offer a variety of programs for youth and adults, including recreation and league sports. Coaches—often volunteers and including many parents—emphasize teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values.

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.

Like all Y programs, swim, sports and play is open to all with financial assistance available.

Maureen's Story

Professional female boxer Maureen Shea shares how the YMCA helps in the development of athletes, and the equal opportunities the Y gives to child athletes who are in homeless or transitional living situations through programs like Operation Ventura.

"We may have a child that comes in that nobody would have known is an amazing soccer player, an amazing swimmer, and they're going to have this opportunity to find this out because of Operation Ventura."

The Ventura Family YMCA is showing "My YMCA Story" vignettes to support the Y's Annual Campaign. Help make these stories possible by donating to the Y's Campaign! Click here to see more stories!
