Summer Swim

Registration for summer swim begins Monday, April 15th!

Registration for summer swim will be in house and online! Click here for info on how to register online.


At the Y, we believe every person should know how to swim. We know confidence in the water leads to confidence outside the pool. We offer swim lessons for ages 6 months and up!
