lessonsThe Woodson YMCA provides an excellent swimming lesson program at all three of our locations. We also offer a variety of recreational aquatic opportunities (Kayaking, Scuba, Water Exercise) and certification classes (Swim Instructor, Lifeguard, CPR and Scuba).

Many of our swimmers participate in the competitive Dolphins Swim Team. There is one team for all three Y locations. Our team is a YMCA and a USS year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to experienced swimmer.
