Programs & Services

The many and varied programs and services offered by the Wyckoff Y will keep the entire family busy from dawn to dusk.

Aquatics

Aquatics at the Y

The Wyckoff Family YMCA provides a year-round aquatics program, both instructional and recreational for all ages, abilities, levels and interests. Our aquatics program lays a foundation of water skills and safety guidelines so participants can enjoy a lifetime of safe, healthy, aquatic activities.

Our progressive method of instruction allows participants to grow and learn at their own pace, mastering skills while building their self-confidence and self-esteem.  Members can cross-train and enjoy a great cardio workout in a variety of water exercise classes as well as rebuild their strength, flexibility and balance in a water therapy class.  Support and encouragement are provided to members in the water training classes as they train to be well-rounded athletes.  The Wyckoff Y is committed to the positive aspects of competitive swim for our youth. The Y is proud to be the home of the Wyckoff YMCA Sharks and Stingrays, as well as the host for three area high school swim teams.

There are 2 pools at the Wyckoff Y which provide recreational, instructional, competitive, and aerobic opportunities to members of all ages.  The Boye pool is kept at approximately 81°.  It is primarily used for lap swimming, adult training classes, competitive swim teams, and some exercise classes.  The New pool is kept at approximately 87°.  It is primarily used for instructional swim programs, family swim, and therapeutic and water exercise classes.

An official Make a Splash Local Partner!

We are proud to announce that the Wyckoff YMCA is a recognized Make A Splash Local Partner. Consistent with the goal of saving lives and providing every child in America with the opportunity to learn how to swim, Make a Splash, a national child-focused water safety initiative, was created by the USA Swimming Foundation in 2007. Make a Splash partners with learn-to-swim providers across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate kids on the importance of learning how to swim. Many partner programs are located in disadvantaged or ethnically diverse communities and provide training programs (including certified instructors, resources and quality programming) to help children become water-safe and share with them a lifelong physical fitness activity. Make a Splash’s awareness campaign is built around the staggering statistics that minority children ages 5-14 are most at risk for drowning, and drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 14. Make a Splash educates parents through a national awareness campaign; saves lives by joining forces with grassroots learn-to-swim programs and reaches millions of children through its programming, promotions and publicity tours.
