Knowing how to swim is a lifelong skill benefiting one's overall health and well-being. The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years, teaching and encouraging swimmers of all ages, abilities and interests. Our 3:1 ratio ensures your child gets quality attention and gives you peace of mind. At the Randolph Y, we're dedicated to helping people grow in skill and confidence for a lifetime of fitness and water safety. We focus on the key elements of aquatics: stroke development, personal safety, sports and games plus personal growth and development. If you have been out of lessons for 1 or more session or are new to our swim program, you will need to have an evaluation for proper swim class placement.
