PROGRAMS & SERVICES
At the Westport Weston Family YMCA, we have a multitude of programs and services that are focused on positive youth development, motivating healthy living, and encouraging social responsibility. Whether you are looking for child care, engaging youth programs, a way to stay active or volunteer and serve your community, the Y has got something for everyone to discover their potential and become the best version of themselves. Because when we are healthy and happy in mind, body, and spirit, we are stronger as a community.
At the Westport Weston Family YMCA, we believe that it is our mission to build more, confident swimmers. To meet this goal, we offer swim lessons for infants, toddlers, children, teens and adults. All ages can participate in swim lessons in groups or privately. More experienced swimmers may tryout for our Competitive Swim Team and Masters Swim program and participate in regional and national level swim meets.
In addition to swim lessons and swim team, our Y also provides Aquatic Fitness classes, Family Swim time, and Lifeguard Certification classes.
Designed for the busy parent in mind, our Child Care Programs provide a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment for children to learn, grow, and thrive in. Families can go to work with peace of mind as children are cared for in our After School Child Care programs and Vacation Day Camp programs. The Family YMCA After School Program provides a fun, safe environment for children in grades K-5 in Westport Public Schools. The program runs at the Westport Weston Family YMCA from the end of the school day until 6 pm.
Family Memberships may also enjoy our free Kids Club babysitting service as parents and caregivers work out and achieve their wellness goals at the Y.

SPORTS & RECREATION
At the Westport Weston Family YMCA, we believe that sports are one of the best avenues for reinforcing the core values. To that end, we strive to provide opportunities for members of all ages to participate in and improve their skills in a variety of athletic and recreational activity.
Our youth sports program emphasizes three things: teaching kids the fundamental skills of their chosen sport, encouraging teamwork and fair play, and creating an environment where kids enjoy playing their chosen sport in order to promote a lifetime of physical activity. Choose from sports like basketball, soccer, flag football, karate, fencing, and much more!
At the Family Y, we believe in the importance of providing adults the opportunity to engage in individual and team sports. We intentionally schedule time for adults to use our facilities to play basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, badminton & more!
