Swimming & Aquatics | Programs & Activities | Lakeland Hills Family YMCA

Swimming & Aquatics

In addition to learning lifesaving water safety skills, people of all ages can increase their physical activity by swimming. Swimming also motivates children to strive for self-improvement, teaches goal orientation, and cultivates a positive mental attitude and high self-esteem. It also teaches life lessons of sport and sportsmanship, so that children can learn how to work well with teammates and coaches and how to deal with winning and losing.
