The best part is that group fitness classes are included with every membership! We have dozens of classes per week to choose from.

The YMCA has been offering aquatics programming & swimming lessons for over a century. Thousands of Canadians have learned to swim at the Y and continue to enjoy lane swimming, stroke improvement, water exercise and play in our state-of-the-art aquatic centres.

Your YMCA membership includes Swim lessons, aquafit classes, lane swimming, and open swim times. 

Child, Youth and Family

 

We want to be there every step of the way through your family’s journey. We are committed to supporting families to living healthy, active lives together which is why we have a variety of options for children through their teen years. Kids and families can exercise, play and socialize together. Whether you want to take up an activity with your child or encourage them to try something new, there are plenty of ways to live healthy together.

In addition to programs included with your YMCA membership, martial arts programs such as Karate are available by registration.
