COVID-19 Aquatics Update:

2/10/2021- Due to Hawaii government order, our pool will be open for lap exercise. Unfortunately all other programs are currently still closed.

We are currently offering 45 minute lap lane reservations (for lap swim or pool exercise) to members. Please visit to access 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.

 Current programming including family swim, aqua exercise classes have been added back starting in tier 2, other programing will be phased in  following the directives of the CDC, state and local government orders.

Please continue to check back on our website for current updates.

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.
