Gleason Family YMCA Aquatics

Swim Programs – Parent/Child, Preschool, Youth & Adult

The Y offers a wide range of swimming options for the whole family  including: traditional learn to swim classes starting with infants right through to adults; specialty programs for diverse abilities; water sports & games; private & semi-private swim lessons; swim team; Master’s style swim conditioning; aquatic exercise classes; open swim & lap swim times.

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 Gleason Family YMCA has two beautiful swimming pools; one is a six lane indoor pool that includes zero entry sides with a slide and several other water features. In July of 2010, a new outdoor pool was opened that includes a large zero entry side with several water features and has three lap lanes.

The outdoor pool has a large deck with umbrella covered tables and comfortable chaise lounges.  There are three changing areas: male, female and a family changing area. Both pools have certified lifeguards on duty at all times.

Please see our pool schedule for availability.  For more information, please contact Melissa Dyer (Senior Program Director) at 508.295.9622 x27 or mdyer@ymcasc.org OR Danielle Gilmore (Aquatics Coordinator) at x16 or dgilmore@ymcasc.org.

Combining the environment of a great training facility, experienced coaching staff, supportive parents and hard working swimmers, our Gleason Family YMCA Riptides 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.
