Aquatics Program

Instructional & Recreational

The HANOVER AREA YMCA in Pennsylvania 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. The Hanover Y is committed to the positive aspects of competitive swim for our youth.


The  Hanover Area YMCA is proud to be the home of the Hanover YMCA Stingrays that compete in the CASL summer league and the fall/winter league, YSCAP Swim League. Go Team!

Swim Lesson Policies

Classes that have less than 4 participants will be canceled and combined with existing classes. It is important to register early for classes so that we may be sure to have enough instructors for a class.

There will be no makeups unless there is a space available in other existing classes. You must call the Aquatics Coordinator to schedule a makeup. If the YMCA cancels a class due to no instructor, or pool closure, a makeup class will be held. Refunds given only if the YMCA cancels program, credit will be issued once program has started and participant drops class.
