Did you know that basketball and volleyball were invented by early YMCA leaders?
Our sports programs develop more than skills—they develop character. We offer a variety of programs for youth and adults, including recreation and league sports. Coaches—often volunteers and including many parents—emphasize teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values.
The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. But our swim lesson programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty swim programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports. Programs and classes vary by location. For swim program details, explore the website of the YMCA nearest you.
