Swimming at the Y is about building the whole person and developing healthy habits that last a lifetime

The YMCA is the place where many people will begin their journey on becoming and staying active while developing healthy habits that will continue throughout their lives. The benefits are far greater than just physical health. Swimming at the Y is about building the whole person, from the inside out. Come check out two of the best swimming pools in Frederick County!

Swim Lessons

We help swimmers overcome fears, build confidence in the water and develop skills that last a lifetime.

Water Fitness

Improve your strength, flexibility and improve functionality for daily living by working out in the water. The water’s resistance helps build strength, endurance and it is stress-free on the body.

Lifeguard & CPR Training

Learn lifeguarding skills, how to perform CPR, how to use an AED and necessary first-aid skills.

Swim Team

Compete in a summer and winter league that promotes youth development, healthy living and social responsibility while learning the different strokes.
