Dive into the widest range of aquatics programs anywhere!

Nothing builds confidence like learning how to swim. It’s an essential life skill that can provide a lifetime of fun in and around water. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced swimmer, you can gain the skills and strength you need to stay safe and enjoy making a splash.

The YMCA has been offering swimming lessons to Canadians since the 1900s. Thousands of Canadians have learned to swim at the Y and so can your kids. That’s why we offer swim lessons, aquatic fitness classes and other programs for toe dippers, deep divers and everyone in between.

Find the aquatics program that's right for you and your family.
