swim at ywca
Generations of Charlotteans have learned to swim at the YWCA Sarah Belk Gambrell Fitness Center. Whether you like to exercise independently in the pool or lap swim, the YWCA pool is a calm haven in your crazy day.
The YWCA's comprehensive aquatics program offers swimming lessons for infants, youth and adults. Our instructors have been WSI certified by the American Red Cross, and we always have a trained lifeguard on deck.
The YWCA offers group swim lessons as well as private and semi-private. For our swim lesson information packet, click here.
Private Lessons: Private or semi-private swim lessons allow the participant to work at a personalized level to achieve swim goals. Participants will focus on particular skills and/or overcome the fear of water.
