Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise there is for people of all ages. Not only is it a healthy activity, but it’s a valuable life skill as well. Whether as a sport or just for fun, swimming is a great activity to dive into.

Since 1885, the Greater Wichita YMCA has been teaching our community to swim. Each year, we teach thousands of our neighbors - from infants through active older adults - how to start and improve swimming skills to be more comfortable and confident near and in the water.

 

Greater Wichita YMCA members can enjoy unlimited use of our open swim/open pool times and water-based group exercise classes as well as discounts on all programs and activities in the water. Members and those with Guest Passes can enjoy:

  • 9 Indoor Family Pools
  • 9 Indoor Lap / Lane Pools
  • 9 Hot Tubs for relaxing
  • 4 Outdoor Water Parks

Each year, we teach thousands of our neighbors - from infants through active older adults - how to start and improve swimming skills to be more comfortable and confident near and in the water.
