Join us for a YMCA instructor-led class on the first and third Tuesdays this summer (May – August)!
We’ll meet on The Alexander Plaza (333 S. Delaware), located on the south side of the hotel, just across the street from the Irsay Family YMCA at CityWay. This event is open to the public, and you don’t need to be a member of the YMCA to participate. Don’t forget to bring your own mat!
The YMCA offers spring and fall track teams for ages 4 to 16 as a great way to learn how to achieve personal goals and be on a team. Kids also learn how to see through a commitment with training and fun.
Compete against 8 YMCA track teams!
Teams are coached at eight area YMCAs and begin practicing one or two days a week in late April. The spring track season culminates with the All-City Track & Field Meet where nearly 400 kids compete in age groups in field events, running and relays.[table “41” not found /]
Are you a runner or walker?
The YMCA also has adult running and walking clubs and triathlon groups and events, coach to 5K, mini and full marathon training programs, like the Inspire Indy 5K Series, perfect for the whole family, and more. Check ’em out!

We’re excited to be part of the first-ever Indy Water Safety Week presented by the new Indy Aquatic Alliance! Enjoy free water safety programs and swim events at 30 locations across Greater Indianapolis throughout the week. All activities are free and open to the public. And here’s what you can do at the YMCA!
Free Water Safety Classes
To help keep kids safe, we have over 300 spots open for free “Safety Around Water” classes for ages 5-12 from June 17-20 at seven area YMCAs. In four, half-hour classes, the Y’s certified swim instructors will teach children basic safety skills and concepts, such as jump, push, turn, grab and swim, float and swim.

“America’s Swim Instructor”
Safety Around Water teaches basic water awareness skills, but is not a substitute for learning how to swim. Swim lessons are always available at eight area YMCAs for a fee and at most Y Summer Day Camps. Known as “America’s Swim Instructor,” the Y also offers swim teams, clinics, water fitness classes, certifications and training and many more aquatics programs year-round. Scholarships are available for all of these programs.
