What the YMCA Offers Homeschooling Families
While each YMCA creates it's own schedule of classes, many locations will have offerings just for homeschooling families. The YMCA in Anchorage offers a homeschool fitness class, the Greensboro YMCA has a homeschool swim class, and our YMCA in Springfield, IL offers a homeschool swim class, homeschool gymnastics, and schedules art classes with the homeschooling schedule in mind. 
Jill Steiner, Associate Executive Director of the Springfield, Illinois YMCA, shared with me that they are "conscious of scheduling for homeschooling families." This YMCA also will work with scouting groups, which many homeschoolers are also involved in, to provide swimming badges to the children.
Steiner stated that "swiming schedules are unique to every YMCA, and every hour and every day." Some YMCAs may not have indoor pools, but outdoor ones, explained Steiner, and some YMCAs may not have a pool at all. Therefore, each interested family should check with their local YMCA to see if they offer swim classes, or other classes specifically for homeschooling participants.
Beyond swimming, other offerings, which again vary by location, could be karate, basketball, dance class, gymnastics, art, soccer, and even group music lessons. The YMCA offers so many different camps, classes and courses that even if swimming isn't a fit for your child, there are many more options to choose from.
