Spring Program Guide

For Teaching Safety Around Water

Building a better us includes keeping your kids safe in and around water. Teaching children how to swim and be safe around water is one of the most important life skills parents can help their children learn. It not only saves lives; it builds confidence.

Many Y programs and classes build confidence! Active older adult wellness classes, Strength Train Together group x, summer camp, school age child care and family open swim. Learn more about all our Spring Programs in our Spring 2019 Program Guide.

Our Spring Session runs April 22 – June 9, 2019. Registration opens on Monday, April 1 for Members / Monday, April 8 for Community Members.
