Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise. The Y Swim Lesson Program focuses on personal safety, personal growth, stroke development, water sports and games, and rescue components.
Our variety of instructor led water exercise classes are great workouts that don’t stress the joints.
The YMCA offers a full Lifeguard training course that includes CPR, First Aid, rescues and accident prevention.
Families swim, learn aquatic skills and get exercise together at the Downtown Berkeley YMCA.
