Fitness & Aquatics
Take a plunge in our swimming pool in the East Village! Membership at the 14th Street Y offers adult lap lanes, adult open swim, and family swim for 8-10 hours per weekday and 7-8 hours on weekend days. In addition, members receive discounts on all kids and adult aquatics classes and swimming lessons.
Private Swim lessons are an excellent way to encourage a swimmer who needs extra help to improve quickly. Our Red Cross Certified instructors will help you or your child to set and accomplish goals. For more information about Private Lessons Schedules and costs, email [email protected].
Non-Members can register and participate in aquatics classes and private lessons.
Our Aquatics Staff and Program Philosophy
Each member of the 14th Street Y Aquatics full-time staff boasts at least 7 years of swim teaching experience. You or your child will be in the skilled and capable hands of a Red Cross certified instructor who has worked with adults and children of all levels on a variety of water skills.
Our low swimmer to instructor ratio (lower than the minimum suggested by the Red Cross) sets our Aquatics program apart, and allows our students to receive the attention that they need to thrive. We ensure that all swimmers are having a safe, productive and active time in our pool.
