It All Happens at the McCormick YMCA
Whether it’s personal training and wellness for yourself, or youth sports and day camps for your family, you’ll find it all at the McCormick YMCA!
AdultOur swim lessons are designed for those with little or no swimming experience. Skills will include water acclimation and comfort, proper floating, breathing techniques, and basic swim strokes including front crawl, back crawl and elementary backstroke.
YouthOn days when school is closed, we offer Schools Day Out classes to keep children busy and learning — and give parents peace of mind. Our dedicated staff makes sure your children are developing the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behavior, better health, and greater educational achievement.
Infant & Toddler CareThe infant/toddler program requires a parent/guardian to be present in the pool with the participant at all times. We will introduce basic aquatic safety to parents and set healthy expectations for your child. As children progress in comfort around the aquatic environment, you'll help your child explore by introducing basic skills like kicking, blowing bubbles, assisted floating on front and back, and exiting the water safely.
