SAFE & CONFIDENT SWIMMERS START AT THE Y: SWIM LESSONS, COMPETITIVE SWIM TEAM AND MORE!
Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. Our Ys offer swim lessons for all ages, family swim, competitive swimming, and many kinds of adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment. The YMCA's Swimming programs encourage people of all ages to use the buoyant qualities of water to enhance their physical fitness through exercise. It’s an ideal form of exercise for all ages and increases physical strength and endurance without putting stress and strain on joints. Swimmers and non-swimmers alike can take part in this type of exercise to improve health, fitness and overall well-being.
We’ve “upgraded” our swim lessons! Our instructors have been trained in the latest and greatest swim curriculum from Y-USA. Swim lessons include proven effective progressions for swim safety, confidence building and stroke development with a splash of fun! Check out our new "swim selector" to learn more about selecting the right swim lesson.

Salem YMCA GreenSpace
HEALTHY, HAPPY COMMUNITY
The Salem Y GreenSpace is a public garden run by Salem teens and community volunteers with the support of the Salem YMCA, the City of Salem, and other generous donors. The GreenSpace provides healthy produce to our neighbors and hosts community events.
Unlike most community gardens, there is no membership fee and the beds aren’t designated to individuals; instead our teens and volunteers maintain the garden as a group and the produce grown is given to the participants and to the community at no charge. Our goal is to provide a space that brings people together, educates, and helps to foster community.
We are located in an old abandoned batting cage in Palmer Cove Park in the Point neighborhood, behind Saltonstall School. We renovated the space building raised beds, a shed, a meeting room, and a greenhouse, but the space still maintains the feel of its previous life as evidenced by twelve foot fences and home plate!
Come down, check us out, volunteer your time.
