Family YMCA of Black Hawk County

Keep Youth Active This Winter

At the Y, our staff, coaches and volunteers all share a vision of helping all youth reach their full potential in life. We aim to create a healthy outlet for children to build character, gain new skills, develop a sense of team and connect with positive role models through youth sports. We also make sure kids can just be kids — playing, learning and growing.

At the Y, children become safe and confident in the water, learning to swim in a positive, fun manner that builds lifelong skills. Research shows formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children ages 1-4 years. We offer a wide range of options for the whole family with classes beginning at 6 months of age. Classes are offered year-round.

Don’t wait…get your child involved in swim lessons today!
