CLOSURE UPDATE: Per mandate from Governor Polis, and because it is the right thing to do, our facilities are closed. Check here for COVID-19 updates. We are running emergency childcare for any family who needs care.


For children from 6 months to 3 years old, YMCA Swim Starters swim lessons help children become comfortable in water and teach parents about water safety. These lessons do not teach children how to survive in water or become accomplished swimmers. Instead, Swim Starters swim lessons create a foundation of aquatic skill through fun and confidence-building experiences. Parents and caregivers learn how to supervise children in water, prevent accidents and plan for emergencies. These lessons are held in Boulder, Lafayette and Longmont.

The Arapahoe Y pool will reopen for limited use on Thu, June 4. All other pools are currently closed.

Only 30 minute private swim lessons available for upper level swimmers (stage 4 and higher) at this time.

Please review our reopening guide before coming to the Y so you know what to expect.

Registration closes three days prior to the lesson start date to give us time to coordinate each lesson. If you would like to sign up for lessons after registration closes, please call the Aquatics Department to see if space is still available.
