The YMCA has long been America’s favorite swimming instructor. Whether just learning how to swim, improving strokes, swimming competitively or taking water exercise classes, members are in safe hands with our certified swimming instructors and lifeguards.

Swimming is a great way to strengthen, tone and condition muscles with little to no pressure or impact that other exercise may cause. Swimming increases muscle strength and tone quicker than many other types of exercises, according to YMCA aquatics directors. Water offers support for joints and bone. As you move into deeper water your body begins to decrease its weight bearing load. In layman’s terms, water helps support your weight. When you are immersed up to your neck, your body is only bearing 10 percent of its weight.

The YMCA of Wayne County offers swimming lessons to every level of swimmer at the Ellen Shapiro Natatorium and the Orrville Branch Natatorium. We also offer SWIM TEAM opportunities for those who wish to swim copetatively as well. To register click the sign up button below.
