Swimming

Test Out Our Water

Whether you are a beginner swimmer or on your way to the Olympics, we are a great place to make a splash. 

We have two Y aquatic centers, one in our Sherwood Family YMCA and the other at Clark county Family YMCA. Our indoor aquatic programs provide members and participants a comfortable environment for team sports, water aerobics, swim lessons, family time, birthday parties and more. 

Program Offerings

Swimming Lessons

When it comes to swimming and water safety, no one is trusted more than the YMCA, America's swim instructor. In fact, group swim instruction was developed by the YMCA in 1906.

The YMCA swim lesson curriculum is designed to teach this lifelong skill to children and adults of all skill levels in a safe environment. We offer swim lessons for the beginner and for those looking to improve their strokes. Adult swim lessons are for individuals ages 13 and older.

Swim Teams

Sign your child up for a competitive swim team at either our Clark County Family YMCA or the Sherwood Regional Family YMCA
