YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

At the Y, we don’t just teach swimming lessons or coach soccer. We’re about youth development: ensuring that the 9 million children and teens in our programs reach their full potential by helping them grow— physically, mentally and socially— from young children into engaged, active members of their communities.

HEALTHY LIVING

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

To bring about meaningful change, individuals need ongoing encouragement and tools. We’re here day-in and day-out to provide the resources our communities need to address the most pressing social issues: child welfare, education, employment, housing and substance abuse. We work to make sure every child, family and community has what they need to achieve their best.

PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS
Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport.  SWC YMCA offers private swim lessons that allow the participant to work at a personalized level to achieve swim goals.  Private swim lessons are a good way to help swimmers focus on a particular skill or to help overcome a fear of the water, so everyone can safely enjoy the aquatic environment.  Contact Andrea Burris at 715.818.6031 or burris@swcymca.org for more information.
