Aquatics / Swim Lessons

Swimming is a life skill. The YMCA has been teaching people of Central Indiana how to swim for over 150 years, especially children, helping them to be safe around water and prevent accidents.


Water fitness and swimming provide health benefits across the lifespan, from young to those young-at-heart.

Participants safely enjoy aquatic classes at all levels, from beginner to expert. Our parent and child swim lessons help toddlers get comfortable in the water; while all preschool and youth swim lessons develop progressive skills, building upon a child’s confidence in and out of the pool. All Y swim lessons can be group or private, including instruction for teen and adults. As a result, we make it easy for everyone to learn this important life skill. Find the right swim program for you or your family, we offer Swim Lessons, Swim Teams, Swim Clinics, Water Fitness, Certifications and Training and much more.
