During any Mahaska County YMCA Open Swim time, families can come splash and play, swim enthusiasts can do laps, and those learning to swim can get extra practice on their own time. Special lap swimming tips and instructions are listed with the YMCA Pool Schedule. Open and Lap Swim are included in the basic membership package.
Stroke clinics offered in the fall for children who are interested in joining the swim team. The clinic is designed to teach proper competitive stroke technique in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. This four-week program helps swimmers develop and maintain their muscular endurance while focusing on improved skills and swim times.
