Tidal Wave Swim Team

The Y Tidal Wave Swim Team is a year-round developmentally competitive program for children 6 years of age and up who can successfully complete one length of the pool unassisted on their front and on their back.

The YMCA of Abilene is devoted to providing a positive and memorable experience for the swimmers. In addition to teaching proper swimming skills and techniques, we aim to develop good sportsmanship and team spirit.

Practices are held Monday through Friday at the YMCA Redbud Family Center.


Lifeguard Certification and Training

Lifeguard certification and trainingĀ is also available through the Redbud Family Center.


After School Aquatics

The YMCA Aquatics Department is now offering swim lessons to Afterschool program participants. All skills levels are welcome. With a completed waiver and paid fee, your child will be picked up from and returned to their afterschool groups. They must have an appropriate swim suit (no gym/basketball shorts) and a towel to participate in the lesson. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to learn life saving skills in a structured environment with trained instructors.
