The EYCC is the place where many people will begin their journey on becoming and staying active and developing healthy habits that will continue throughout their lives. And, the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in aquatics at the EYCC is about building the whole person, from the inside out.


Our six-level Learn-to-Swim program is unlike anything offered by other learning to swim programs. The program is designed for children 6 months all the way up to adults, and students’ progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. Each level of our Learn-to-Swim class includes training in basic water safety and helping others in an emergency, in addition to stroke development.

Course length: Varies by Class. Courses typically meet for 6-7 weeks, 30-45 minutes each

  • Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills
  • Level 2: Fundamental Aquatic Skills
  • Level 3: Stroke Development
  • Level 4: Stroke Improvement
  • Level 5: Stroke Refinement
  • Level 6: Swimming and Skill Proficiency

Lap swim offers swimmers a great cardiovascular workout. Even a few laps can have a positive impact on your well-being. Whatever pace you work at, come enjoy our relaxing waters and get healthier at the same time. Every effort is made so that at least one lap lane is reserved for lap swim at all times. We offer kickboards, fins, and pull buoys to add to your workout. We encourage lane sharing and circle swimming.

The pool is great for exercise because the water offers resistance while reducing the impact of land-based exercises. Water fitness classes are a fun way to exercise, and the low-impact workout builds strength and flexibility for people of all ages.

Visiting the pool is a great family activity, and we make sure families can enjoy swimming together. We reserve “Open Swim” time in our pools every week so that individuals and families can enjoy the pool together. Check our pool schedule for open swim times and availability. Please note that safety is our highest priority and that we require children to be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
