Swimming is a Life Skill

Swimming is great exercise and a life skill for ALL ages. The Y has long been America’s favorite place to swim, whether you’re just learning how to swim, improving strokes, swimming competitively or taking water exercise classes.

The Wallingford Family YMCA believes that swimming is key for safety and for supporting the aerobic, muscular and skeletal health of all members. We offer a myriad of opportunities to enjoy the pool from lap swimming, to exercise classes, swim lessons and a competitive swim team.

In addition, we hold special events like Scuba Santa and our regular Flick-n-Floats (family movie nights) in the pool; there is always something going on in aquatics!
