Serving Up Fun After School

Children are like sponges – they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success.  That’s why our after school programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.

Swim Lessons at the Y

Y Swim Lessons offer youth the opportunity to learn and practice new swimming skills and feel a sense of achievement from mastering something new that they can enjoy the rest of their lives.  Kids become more comfortable and secure around water, as they learn water safety and improve their swim skills.
