The YMCA has a rich tradition in aquatic programs! We love providing our Y members and community with opportunities to enjoy aquatic activities all year round. We offer everything from swim lessons to water exercise and open swimming! The YMCA of Van Wert County also uses our pool area to host other organizations in town like the hospital, local swim meets, and more! All aquatic programs at the YMCA of Van Wert County will have a lifeguard on duty.
Please feel free to look through each of our aquatic sections for more information on what we can offer you and your family!

YMCA swim lessons are a great way to get your children acclimated to the water. Lessons can provide the skills for youth to be safe in the water. This is not a substitute for close adult supervision. Click "Learn More" for more information about what we offer for your family!
Water Exercise is perfect for those looking for low impact exercise that won't put too much stress on joints. Our H20 cardio takes places most mornings in our heated pool. Click "Learn More" for more information!
Lifeguard Certification Class
The YMCA of Van Wert County offers a yearly lifeguard certification class for anyone 15 years old and up. Lifeguard certification provides great skills for safety around the water. We hire multiple lifeguards throughout the year. Especially for Camp Clay in the summer. Successful completion of the course does not guarantee a position with the YMCA of Van Wert County but it is a great first step! Click "Learn More" for more information.
