"Kareem started here at Sunday swimming lessons and ended up at a national championship swim meet. We are so lucky to have found this program and have coaches and instructors who inspire our kids every day to be better than the day before. They taught them so much and went beyond to care for the swimmers. Their encouragement and constant motivation pushed them to heights I never thought possible. I hope The YMCA program inspires more future champions as it has inspired our four kids over the past 10 years. You’re awesome!
