YMCAs have been teaching people to swim for over a century.
The aquatics program at the Rye Y follows a long tradition of teaching swimming, an important life skill, in addition to basic water safety techniques. Our philosophy is that both can be learned at any time in a person’s life from the very youngest (6 months) to youth/teens (10-16) and to seniors (62+). We focus on teaching the basic techniques of swimming, refining and improving those skills for team competition as well as specialized skills such as life guarding and CPR. The results of these programs are increased confidence in the water, team building, and a lifelong fitness activity for young and old. Rye YMCA offers aquatics programs for children ,teens, adults and their families. We are a comprehensive learn to swim program for all ages.
The Swim School at the Rye YMCA has over 50 active swim instructors, aquatic exercise professionals, ARC trainers, swim coaches, lifeguards and administrators. We take pride in our facility and our staff’s commitment to delivering quality programs.
