Whether you are a total beginner or you take to water like a fish, the Tampa Y has a swimming program for you.
Our beginner programs are available for anyone age 13 or older who wants to become more comfortable being in the water. We even offer a “Terrified of Water” (TOW) class for students who are ready to dip a toe into the pool.
Other programs at the Tampa Y include Intermediate, Stroke Clinic, Master Swimmer and Aqua Fit for swimmers with advanced skills and competitive goals. Our nationally acclaimed Arthritis class provides gentle fitness and stretching for swimmers with a limited range of motion.
You can also train to become a Certified Lifeguard for summer work or a year-round profession. Students learn accident prevention, lifeguarding techniques, emergency systems, and rescue and basic first aid skills.
