About Aquatics

YMCAs have been teaching people to swim for more than a century. In the YMCA of West San Gabriel Valley aquatic programs, children learn to be safe around water and they feel the sense of accomplishment that comes with learning something new. Children can develop lifelong skills that can help them stay healthy. Our YMCA aquatic programs include parent/ child classes, preschool, youth, adult classes, and swim teams.
