The LY Swim Team is the only year-round swimming program in Lynchburg. We focus on the long-term development of successful competitive swimmers, providing stroke instruction and age-appropriate training to allow swimmers to progress to their highest potential. LY Swim Team is a program of the YMCA of Central Virginia.
The Masters Swim program is designed for swimmers who want to improve stroke technique and work on endurance. Whether you are trying to stay in the water, or getting back into swimming after a long break, our qualified coach will be able to give you a challenging and beneficial workout for your level of swimming.
Water group exercise classes are a wonderful alternative to “land” exercises. With water exercise, you receive the same benefits of a cardiovascular workout with less impact on your joints. All fitness levels and non-swimmers are welcome!
