We offer two different parent/tot classes.  One session for children ages 6 months to 3 years or a second session for children ages 3 to 4 years.   Children enrolled in parent/tot need to wear a swim diaper unless potty trained. Classes are designed to allow the child to have fun in the water, while the parent guides him or her to learn aquatic skills.  The child will be exposed to kicking, floating, basic arm strokes and breath control through play and songs.  An adult must accompany the child in the water.

At the Huntington YMCA, we have a long history of swimming success. With coaches like Glen Hummer and George Haines, our swim teams have produced great competitors and even better people. Join us as we restart our Y Swim Team program and be a part of the next exciting chapter of Huntington YMCA Swimming.

Our Fall Swim Team is an introductory, pre-competitive experience to prepare swimmers for our upcoming Competitive Swim program. Experienced swim coaches will work with swimmers to develop proper technique in each of the competitive strokes. In addition, students will learn new skills, such as streamlines, racing dives, flip turns and other competitive swimming knowledge.

Swimmers must have the endurance to swim one length of the pool without a flotation device.
