Aquatics Classes

Members improve cardiovascular endurance and muscle conditioning and tone by using the buoyancy and resistance of the water. We offer classes for everyone.

YMCA RAYS not only develops great swimmers, but cultivates athletes – physically, emotionally, mentally and socially. Building healthier, stronger kids!


Come enjoy the Y indoor and outdoor pools and our water parks. Aquatics at the Y are about more than just the techniques and skills; we are about building friendships, developing self-esteem and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime.
