We are very proud of our 9-time Indiana YMCA State Championship team. Not only for their wins, but for the friendships and self-confidence developed through teamwork and individual excellence as a member of the team. Kids ages 5-18 may join the Stingrays any time of the year. Our seasons are September through March and May through July.

Your child may join the team when able to swim a minimum of 2 lengths (50 yards) of both front crawl and backstroke, and has been introduced to breast stroke. Swim team members must be Full Members of Michiana Family YMCA.


aquatics brochure Aquatics is kind of our thing. We are a national leader in swim instruction for all ages and water safety. Our pool is a great place where families can enjoy swimming together. We reserve "Open Swim" times in our pool every week for this very reason. We also offer a lap swimming option for those wanting a great cardiovascular workout. Laps not your thing? Water fitness classes are a fun way to exercise, and the low-impact workout builds strength and flexibility for people of all ages. If you are looking for more competitive swim programs, we have those too. Finally, and most importantly, our pool is a great place to have fun and exercise but your safety is our highest priority.

Greatest Chefs of Michiana Saturday, February 28, 2015 Chefs from Michiana's top restaurants have been teamed with a local "celebrity" to help the Y serve up a helping of life-changing programs to kids and families. Together, they will create a new dish to be featured at the chef's restaurant during the month of February.

Customers are encouraged to try all of the dishes, and vote for their favorite. The signature dishes, chefs, and celebrities will be featured at a gala event taking place at the Century Center in South Bend.

Last year’s event raised $250,000 to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being, and give back to our neighbors in need.

Tickets for the evening are now available; voting has already begun.
