For more than 100 years, local Y’s have been the place Americans go to find the most trusted instructors of swimming and lifeguard training, so much that the YMCA has been called "America's Favorite Swim Instructor." Enjoy our 6 lane competitive pool, and our Family pool for open swims with the family, lunch time lane swims or an aqua aerobics class with friends. Our outdoor Splash Pad is open during the summer hours for your enjoyment too.

Please click here for pool schedule January 8th, 2018 - February 25th, 2018 

The Splash Pad will re-open on Memorial Day 2018. 

The playground is open during Family Pool hours.

Please note our lap pool hours have changed significantly as swim teams are in session October-March.

Swim Lessons

YMCA's are world pioneers in swimming instruction and water safety. At area Y’s, children and adults not only learn how to swim, but also learn about themselves, safety and rescue skills, and water activities that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Throughout all levels, students are taught aquatic, boating safety and rescue skills. YMCA’s also offer water fitness classes and a competitive swim program for youth.
