Kings Mountain YMCA - Aquatics

Dive Into Aquatics

Few things are more inviting than a bright blue, sparkling pool. And at the Kings Mountain Family YMCA, we have our wading and outdoor pool ready for swim lessons, water aerobics, family fun, private parties, and more.

So whether you’re a parent looking to launch your “Polliwog,” or a senior working to stay fit and socially connected, the Y has a pool, program or lesson for you.

At the Y, we believe the ability to swim is a critical life skill for every child and teen. In swim lessons, we use a variety of fun methods to help kids overcome fears, build confidence in the water, learn water safety, and develop skills that last a lifetime. Our qualified swim instructors are trained in the philosophies and disciplines set by YMCA of the USA, a national leader in swim lessons for more than 100 years.
