Swimming at the Y

Your YMCA offers a wide variety of aquatic programs for all levels! Our indoor aquatic programs provide members and participants with a comfortable environment for team sports, water aerobics, swim lessons, family time, birthday parties, and more.


Our "Safety Around Water" program helps youth recognize risk while learning critical safety skills near water.


People attend swim lessons and "Safety Around Water" trainings per year.


We've been helping the Pacific Northwest swim since 1901, when our first pool was built.
