Y Swim Programs

Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Our Youth Swim programs are focused on keeping kids safe in and around water while developing confidence and skills that last a lifetime. Kids can explore the water through swim lessons, recreation, swim clubs, competitive swim teams and water safety programs year-round at the Y.

Additionally, the YMCA of WNC manages and operates the pool at Patton Park in Hendersonville, NC. Find more information about Patton Pool hours of operation and rates here.
