Registration is open for swim lessons, lifeguard certification course, summer youth sports


For nearly 135 years, the Winona Family YMCA has been committed to youth development. This commitment is even more important than ever as people face unprecedented times when children need safe and fun opportunities to thrive this summer.

Summer youth sports will kick off the week of July 13. All programs are five weeks. Happy Hurdlers is a track and field program for three to six year olds,on Monday nights from 5:30-6:15 p.m. There is a first- through fourth-grade track and field program on Monday and Wednesday nights from 4:30-5:15 p.m. There is also a first- through fourth-grade soccer skills program on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 4:30-5:15 p.m.

The Winona Family will be offering swim lessons starting on Monday, June 29. Changes have been made to lessons that will help keep you and your kids safe while still providing quality lessons that are vital for this river community. 

A blended format (mixture of online and in-person) lifeguard certification course is being offered on Saturday, July 4, and Sunday, July 5, for participants 15 years and older. 

“The YMCA wants to help keep your kids safe this summer,” said Jessica White, aquatics coordinator. “We are happy to be able to offer swim lessons at a time when the need is particularly high. Red Cross has updated all policies and regulations on how lifeguarding is done in response to COVID-19. Our guards have to be re-trained on all the new life-saving techniques and modifications needed to keep everyone safe.”
