youthlessonsWelcome to the Aquatics Department at Central Bucks Family YMCA! We are for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Since 1885, the Y has been an innovator and leader in aquatic program development. Through a variety of aquatics programs, the Y not only helps develop swimming and water safety skills, but focuses on the needs of the individual participant and the community. Our programs all foster our four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.

Our progressive approach allows each child to advance at their own pace. When your child has mastered one level, they're ready for the next. Each lesson encourages your child to feel good about themselves and what they've learned.


From preschoolers to adults, we specialize in all aspects of water safety and lifelong swim skills ranging from overcoming fear of water to upper level stroke development.

Learning to swim at the Y is about more than just stroke development. It's a swimmer-centered approach, where students learn through play, hands-on exercises and creative repetition. Children are taught in small groups with swimmers at their skill level. When ready, swimmers can apply their skills to upper level programs like swim team, lap swimming for exercise, lifeguard training and Masters Swimming.

Swimming is an activity you can enjoy your whole life. Let the Y help your family discover the exercise, sport and fun that is swimming!
