AT THE Y, WE BELIEVE THE ABILITY TO SWIM IS A CRITICAL LIFE SKILL
Charlotte leads the state of North Carolina in the number of drownings per capita — the Y is working to change this through swim programs for swimmers of every level.
When you learn to swim, you gain confidence, acquire safety/rescue skills and experience water activities you can enjoy for a lifetime. Throughout all stages, we teach students how to be safer and more comfortable in the water.
Following updated recommendations from the CDC, Governor Cooper, public school systems and our state and local health departments, we are temporarily suspending all YMCA member access, activities and programs from our branches and camps. This includes facility access, group fitness classes and wellness programs/activities in all YMCA branches.
