Knowing how to swim is a lifelong skill benefiting one's overall health and well-being.  With Y swimming classes, children learn to be safe around the water and gain confidence that comes with learning and perfecting a skill. Y preschool and youth swimming classes boast low teacher to child ratios and plenty of individual attention. Y adult classes help tone, shape and increase strength and endurance. In all classes, skills are taught in an enjoyable, supportive environment by aquatic professionals.

The YMCA has been teaching and encouraging swimmers of all ages, abilities and interests – for more than 100 years! But one thing never changes: we’re still dedicated to helping people grow in skill and confidence for a lifetime of fitness and water safety. We focus on the key elements of aquatics: stroke development, personal safety, sports and games plus personal growth and development.

Unforeseen Pool Closings Refund Policy: a system credit will only be given for unforeseen pool closings due to sanitary concerns as mandated by the New Jersey Bathing Code. NO refunds, credits or make-up lessons will be given for weather related closings.

Swimming Notes and Information

Pool Rules:

Children 5 and under, must have an adult in the water with them at all times. NO exceptions. Children 14 years of age and younger must have an adult present in the pool area, and may only swim alone after demonstrating Red Cross Level 4 or YMCA Fish level skills. The lifeguard has the right to ask the child to perform a swim test which entails one lap of backstroke and freestyle plus treading water for one minute. It is the lifeguards discretion whether a child is permitted to swim without an adult. Click here for a complete list of our pool rules.

Refund Policy:

Because the YMCA is a volunteer-led non-profit organization that relies on fees and charitable contributions, we work very hard to manage our limited resources thoughtfully and prudently. For each program series, classes are carefully planned according to the number of participants - staff/participant ratios are determined for safety, program supplies are purchased and prepared, and staffing is finalized. Once a program series begins, these expenses are incurred by the organization.
