We are currently offering 45 minute lap lane reservations (for lap swim or pool exercise) to members. Please visit our home page,, to create an account in MotionVibe, our reservation system and to make a reservation.

At this time locker rooms are closed, however we offer outdoor showers for rinsing before & after your pool reservation.

Additionally programming including family swim, aqua exercise classes, etc. will be phased in, following the directives of the CDC, state and local government orders.

At this time, due to social distancing requirements, we are not able to offer swim lessons.

Learn To Swim For All Ages

Here at the Y, we pride ourselves on providing a great place to learn how to swim for all ages. We offer a wide range of classes in our year-round program to meet the needs of members and our Windward community. Our well-trained staff focuses primarily on teaching stroke development, but there are many other aspects of swimming that we include such as safety around water, water sports, and an all-around, enjoyable experience in the water.

Our new upgraded Y learn to swim format easily tracks & accelerates a student's progression while our traditional fish animal badges ensure a fun sense of achievement every "stroke" of the way. Download the January through March LTS Brochure HERE.

 Swim Test

A swim test will be required for any new participant wanting to register for any class other than Pike or Polliwog. Please note that a swim test does not guarantee a space in the program. Spaces are available on a first come first served basis.  

Swim tests will be conducted by appointment only. To schedule a swim test, please contact the Aquatics Department.
