Fall River Y



The Y offers a wide range of swimming options for the whole family including:

  • Traditional learn to swim classes for all ages
  • Private & semi-private swim lessons
  • Swim team
  • Aquatic exercise classes
  • Family swim
  • Independent exercise
  • Lap swim

The pool is fun for everyone with a variety of classes and swimming opportunities to fit everyone’s needs.  

The Y Aquatic programs are positive, fun, healthy activities that build athletic, social and interpersonal skills.  Swimming builds self-confidence and develops the whole person – spirit, mind and body.  Instructional swim classes are divided into ability groups where our trained instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance and social skills while guiding students with praise and encouragement. 

The Fall River YMCA has a four-lane, 25-yard indoor pool that is an inclusive space for everyone, regardless of their swimming abilities.  

For more information, please contact Dorothy Mahoney-Pacheco at 508.675.7841 x125 or dmahoney-pacheco@ymcasc.org 

Please see our pool schedule for availability. 


We are also the home of the Fall River Lightning swim team, which has been very successful recently.   Combining the environment of a great training facility, experienced coaching staff, supportive parents and hard working swimmers, our Fall River YMCA Lightning Swim Team is living their motto everyday: EVERYONE SWIMS, EVERYONE WINS!

Over the course of the season, swimmers will have ample opportunity to increase their mental, physical and emotional abilities, that will carry over into their daily lives out of the swimming pool. As a member of this cohesive group, swimmers will develop social skills that will last a lifetime. Team members will also experience successes that in turn will foster increased self-esteem.

For more information, please contact Cathy Motta (Head Swim Team Coach) at cmottaaa622@gmail.com or Kayln Sardinha (Assistant Coach) at ksardinha@ymcasc.org.
