A Lifetime of Healthy Play
There’s something for every kid at the Y. They can meet new friends, build skills, develop interests and try new things in a supportive environment with caring adults. Our programs emphasize values, sportsmanship, friendship and most of all, fun!

The Y offers swim lessons (for all ages), family swim, community swim, private lessons, and many kinds of adaptive swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment.
Group exercise, community bike rides, arts—there’s a lot more than sports at the Y, giving kids the chance to exert energy, try new things, make new friends … and be kids!
Baseball, soccer, volleyball, flag football, karate, basketball, gymnastics—check out the sports offerings at your Y and get in the game. Improve your skills, make new friends, be active with other kids and learn to love a sport at the Y.
The Ashtabula County YMCA Stingrays Swim Team helps kids value hard work, reach for excellence and enjoy spirited competition.
