Did you know that the Greater Wichita YMCA is the region's leading provider of water and swim education? Our swim lessons - available for members and non-members from six-months to 106-years-old - can improve and enhance water comfort, confidence, and safety for everyone from a first-timer to a competitive, life-long swimmer all under the supervision of certified lifeguard instructors who can provide the right information and support to anyone who wants or needs to learn.
Swimming is not only part of the DNA of the YMCA, it is a great form of exercise, a challenging sport, effective therapy, a valuable life skill, and just plain fun. There’s nowhere better to learn to swim than the Y, either. We've been offering swim lessons and swimming programs since our inception and for well over 100 years locally. Today, the YMCA is the nation's leading swimming teacher - a status we extend to our own served communities in south central Kansas
