Meadowlands Area YMCA


Swimming at the Y

Our Aquatics programs HAVE SOMETHING FOR everyone in the family!

Swimming Lessons for Ages 6 Months - 65+ Years Old 

We are so excited that the brand new 6-lane, 25 yd competition pool is now open! It is a place for our members to enjoy the water, learn to swim, and get fit. The Aquatics Center is temperature controlled and the water is heated year round, which is optimal for all pool-based activities. Our pool viewing deck provides parents with a bird's eye view to enjoy their child's swim lesson or meet. 

The Rutherford High School Pool, located at 56 Elliott Place remains open and will continue to be a part of certain YMCA programs. Click here to view our current swim schedule
