The YMCA of Central New Mexico’s aquatics program strives to teach more than just water skills. We provide both instructional and recreational opportunities for all ages, so participants can enjoy a lifetime of safe, and healthy aquatic fun.
Our swimming pools are places families and neighbors meet in an activity that live on in our memories. And our aquatic programs help the young and young at heart grow spiritually, mentally, and physically.

Whether your school-age child is a new swimmer or has been swimming circles around you, the Y swimming program offers a class that is just right for your child’s skill level. Classes are taught in a fun and positive environment by a qualified and caring swim instructor's.
The Parent/Child program is a great way to introduce aquatic safety skills and water enjoyment to both parents and their child. These classes are designed to encourage parent/child learning and water adjustment in a safe positive setting. Parents accompany their children at all times while an experienced instructor guides parents in teaching their children fundamental safety and aquatic skills. The class is held in the shallow end of the pool. The Parent/Child class is a excellent opportunity for children to begin transitioning to the preschool program.
The Tiny Tots Program provides children with their first pool experience without parental assistance in a fun and positive learning environment. Throughout all levels, children are led through a progressive, multi-phased program that helps them learn the building blocks of swimming.

It’s never too late to learn how to swim or to brush up on swimming techniques! The Adult Swimming program provides novices and experienced swimmers with opportunities to improve their confidence and abilities. Adults will experience the benefits of swimming as an exercise program and social activity.
Swimmers and non-swimmers alike can take part in this type of exercise. In addition to benefits derived from reducing emotional stress and tension, water exercise improves the physical appearance and encourages feelings of well-being and self-esteem.
Bring the whole family and enjoy time splashing around in the pool during our recreational swim time! We also have designated hours in our pool for lap swimming enthusiasts.
