Life Skills and Life Lessons…It All Happens in the Water
There is a long tradition of swimming in the YMCA. From the world’s first indoor pool dedicated in 1885, and the first mass swim lessons getting underway in 1907 to the first indoor filtered pool in 1910 and SCUBA training and certification introduced in 1959, the YMCA has been providing safe, fun, and innovative facilities and programs for swimmers to enjoy for over a hundred years.
The Aquatics program at the Metropolitan YMCAs of Mississippi continues the YMCA tradition by providing swimmers young and old a place to enjoy the water, learn safety, develop self confidence, overcome fears and improve their fitness level. Our certified lifeguards are on deck at all times, ensuring that our “water folks” are safe and enjoying quality time in the aquatics adventure.
