Water Babies

Our WaterBabies program builds basic water safety skills for both parents and children, helping infants and young children ages 6 months to 3 years old become comfortable in the water so they are willing and ready to learn to swim. These basic skills include adjusting to the water environment, showing comfort while maintaining a front or back position, bubble blowing, and gentle submersions. Water babies is offered year round.



Lifeguard Training

Whether you’re looking for a great summer job or a career as a professional lifeguard, the YMCA Lifeguard Training Program is the place to begin. Lifeguards learn not only valuable skills such as CPR and in-water rescue, but they also develop leadership qualities, communication and team-building skills, and improved self-confidence. The comprehensive course offers up-to-date information on how to guard by anticipating and preventing problems before they occur and how to take action to help those in danger when necessary. Lifeguard training is offered a few times a year often in the late spring.
