Swim Test Policy

All children 8th grade and under must be swim tested. Click here for our Swim Test Policy.

Please note: Effective June 23, the red band swim policy has been updated:

  • We will maintain our 1 adult to 2 red band swimmers/nonswimmers without life jackets.
  • We will allow a 1 adult to 4 red band swimmers/nonswimmers as long as all children are in life jackets.
  • We will now be able to provide life jackets (upon parent request) to those red band/nonswimmers that need one. These will be properly sanitized between guests.

Water Fitness

We offer Water Aerobics and Recovery classes on a monthly basis. These classes are all free to members. For more on all of the water fitness classes we offer, please click here.


Swim Lessons

The Y’s new swim lesson progression curriculum is designed to help participants reach their goals and provide a clear progression track. Click here for details on upcoming sessions.

Benefits of this approach include:

  • Accommodating students of varying abilities and ages
  • Fostering a sense of achievement and self-confidence
  • Staying grounded in a skill continuum that allows students to move easily from one stage to the next with clearly defined stages of progress along the way. See detailed information on the new skills taught in each of the stages
  • Encouraging students to have fun and develop new friendships through group activities
  • Improving communication about student’s progress

Students can register for one of eight stages under our three swim categories depending upon their age and current swim ability:
