At the Y, we offer swim lessons (for all ages and abilities), family swim, competitive swimming and adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment.
Our experienced Y instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance and social skills, while guiding students with praise and encouragement.
We’re proud to have been named the 2016 Jax4Kids.com Best of Winner for Best Swim Instruction!
Safety Around Water
Every year the YMCA teaches thousands the importance of water safety through a structured, safe curriculum. We offer FREE swim testing at all neighborhood Y locations in Jacksonville, Fleming Island, Orange Park, Fernandina Beach, St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra Beach and Baker County whenever our pools are open.
