Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Y’s offer swim lessons (for all ages), family swim, competitive swim teams, and more so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment.

The YMCA of Greater Montgomery also offers a summer swim league as well as the year-round competitive Barracudas swim team.

Swim Team

The Montgomery YMCA Barracudas has been the premier swim team in The River Region since 1978. We provide all youth the opportunity to participate in a year round competitive USA/ YMCA Swimming sports team that is dedicated to building athletes who are committed, have strong character, and show great attitude.

Summer Swim League

Our Summer Swim League provides a fun, positive, swim team experience that will help each participant to set goals, build self-esteem, and improve social skills, while learning teamwork, good sportsmanship, and aquatic safety.

We offer swim lessons in a group setting, 2 days per week with 8 classes per session. The class ratio of 1:7. We have options for people of all ages and swim abilities. Classes are held during mid-day, evening, and weekend to fit your family’s busy life.

Master's Swim Team

When you join your local masters swim team you are linking up with a group of like-minded people who are into swimming fast, getting fit, and enjoying every minute of it.

Aquatics Schedules & Policies

Lifeguard Training

Obtain your 2-year certification by taking a Lifeguarding course from the American Red Cross through the YMCA of Greater Montgomery. Courses take as little as 30 hours and emphasize hands-on training, supported by classroom instruction.

Safety Around water

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. Our Safety Around Water program teaches kids about essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.
