Swimming is an important life skill everyone should take the time to master. Swimming can be enjoyed recreationally or competitively but most importantly it can save a life. The YWCA recognizes just how important this skill is for everyone at any age and our swimming instructors are dedicated to providing swimming programs for all ages and abilities.
The YWCA offers programs for infants (over 6 months), parent/child, youth, and adult swim classes. Small group options allow for more specific focus with your child.

YWCA Swim School Philosophy
At our Swim School, we provide the tools and knowledge for people of all ages to learn this important life skill. At the YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester we take a patient and progressive approach to the development of all of our swimmers.
Swimming is not just a vital safety skill, but also a positive and fun lifelong activity that can open doors to many other opportunities.
American Red Cross Program
Here at the YWCA, we follow the standardized American Red Cross Learn to Swim program. Students progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. To enhance learning, it is highly recommended that students come during open swim times to practice their skills and reinforce what they have learned in class.
