The YMCA actively supports a comprehensive swimming program as a vehicle for instilling values, ideas and behavior that are consistent with YMCA goals. YMCA sports are an avenue for youth to pursue physical activity while learning important life skills. Teaching the fundamental swimming skills, encouraging lifetime involvement in physical activity, strengthening the values of fitness, health and self-respect for others are central themes in the YMCA sports philosophy.
