Welcome To Tridents



YMCA swim lessons are more than just teaching techniques. They are about nurturing swimming skills, developing self-esteem and confidence and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime. When it comes to swimming and water safety, no one is trusted more than the YMCA, America's leading swim lesson instructor. In fact, group swim instruction was first developed at the Y in 1906.

Please call the Y at 417-667-9622 for more information or to sign up.
