Swimming and Aquatics


The YWCA of Minneapolis offers swimming and aquatics training for all ages. Infants, children and adults can learn to swim from our instructors through group or private lessons. Get a great aerobic and resistance workout with one of our free Water Fitness classes.

All skill levels are invited to Masters Swimming, in which coaches lead group practices in getting a great workout. Our Total Immersion classes teach a more fluid and efficient style of swimming – and the YWCA of Minneapolis is the only place in Minnesota to experience Total Immersion training.

Young swimmers can learn competitive swimming through our Otters Swim Team, and swim training is available to those who want to hone their triathlon skills.

The YWCA of Minneapolis also offers lifeguard and safety courses, as well as CPR, First Aid and other lifesaving skills in our Red Cross-certified programs.
