LEARN TO SWIM!

Based on guidelines from health and government officials, we are offering limited hours and reduced capacity at our branch pools. Please see Greensboro, NC, branch offerings in the table below for more details.

Are you ready to get in the water? Our Y swim lessons are available for everyone starting at 6 months, so you and your entire family can learn to master the skills needed to help you swim safely.

With a focus on water safety and skill development, the YMCA offers instructions to help you be safe around water. Our programs fit any swimmer’s ability and comfort level. Our certified lifeguards and swim instructors also ensure that everyone has a safe and nurturing place to learn an important life skill while having fun in our pools. Learn to swim with confidence today! 

We can't wait to have you back in the water with us again!

4. There will be no recreational swim allowed before or after the lessons to allow for proper distancing.
