Jump in and discover the benefits of being active in the water
YMCA aquatic programs offer you and your family many ways to make a splash with swim lessons, aquatic fitness classes, and certifications. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced swimmer, we can help you build the confidence you need to stay safe, have fun, and get active in the water.
Spring swim lesson registration opens March 13 for members and March 27 for the public. Spring swim lessons at the Kelowna Family Y will begin later (May 1) due to facility maintenance.
Vital water safety skills save lives, but there's more to YMCA swim lessons than just learning to swim. Children in our programs build self-confidence as they achieve their goals with a little hard work and support from others.
Certification as a lifeguard or swimming instructor can lead to employment opportunities at the Y and elsewhere. You'll also develop leadership skills that can have a profound impact on your future success.
Enjoy a unique fitness experience in the pool. The water provides a “weightless” impact-free environment that protects your joints and keeps you cool and comfortable while you activate your muscles.
