Swimming is a fundamental life skill.

The Y has taught generations of families how to swim and be safe in the water. In fact, we pioneered the practice of swim lessons over 160 years ago! Our expertise in swimming sets us apart and our warm, patient approach to teaching sets you at ease.

Y swim lessons focus on safety, swim readiness, stroke development, and developing a positive approach to water and exercise.

REGISTER NOW and get in on a fun new season of Y swim lessons!

Bowling for a Good Cause

Bowl for Kids Sake is a fundraiser supporting the mentoring program, Big Brothers Big Sisters at the Y. It is a one day bowling event which raises funds by asking teams of six to come together and raise $1,200 per team in order to bowl and support vulnerable kids in our community. Even if you bowl the "occasional" gutterball, your effort, enthusiasm and generosity will forever make a difference!

Help us reach our goal so we can match more youth with adult mentors to build and sustain long-lasting and nurturing relationships.
