Aquatics

Aquatics, like many Y programs, is about learning lifesaving skills, developing confidence and making new friends. In the pool kids and adults become a community as they learn water safety and wellness at four locations across the county.

The Gaston County Family YMCA has three Aquatic Centers – Cherryville Family YMCA (seasonal), Stowe Family YMCA and the Warlick Family YMCA.
