Pool Safety


Learning how to swim isn’t just about encouraging your kids to get in the water. Learning to swim is about building skills that will help ensure their safety and encouraging a healthy activity they can participate in over a lifetime.

The Y offers group swim lessons from ages 6 months to adult. Children under the age of 3 participate in lessons with a parent. We offer a pre-school program and a school-age program, both with a variety of levels to provide your child with age appropriate skill development at their own pace.

All lessons incorporate stroke development, water safety skills, and other aquatic activities such as water polo and synchronized swimming experiences. The Y also offers private lessons, and Swim Team for more experienced swimmers.

The Pomona Valley YMCA is committed to reducing the number of accidental drownings in our communities. We feel it’s our responsibility to increase awareness of the risks and preventative measures associated with pools and water recreation.


Since most of these drownings happen in residential swimming pools, it is vital that parents and other adults in our community adopt and practice as many water safety steps as possible. You can never know which safety measure will save a life – until it does.
