No matter your age or ability, you can learn to swim at the Jerry Long YMCA. Our YMCA trained and certified instructors cover swimming skills, stroke technique, water safety and boating safety in a friendly and encouraging environment. With small instructor to student ratio, our swim lessons provide personal instruction while providing a fun atmosphere. Classes are offered mornings and afternoons. Participants should bring a towel and wear a swimsuit. Goggles are strongly recommended for preschool, youth and adult classes. If your child is not fully potty-trained, it is required that they wear a “swimmy” diaper.

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program
CHANGE TODAY FOR A HEALTHIER FUTURE
An estimated one of every three U.S. adults has prediabetes, yet just 7% of those with prediabetes know they have it.
Are you or someone you know at risk? Take the quiz now to find out.
You can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and gain tools for healthy living. If you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program provides a supportive environment where you can work with others in a small group setting to learn how to adopt healthy habits to reduce your chances of developing the disease.
The program, which is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting, is delivered over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance. You will learn strategies for eating healthier, increasing your physical activity and making other changes that will improve your overall health and well-being. National Institutes of Health research has proven that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of cases of type 2 diabetes by almost 60%.
