EVERETT, Wash. –The Everett Parks Department will be allocating previously donated scholarship funds for income-eligible Everett residents towards swim lessons at the Everett YMCA beginning this October. 


The new partnership will provide a discount on the non-member rate. 30-minute group lessons will be $48 off and 45-minute group lessons will be $72 off. If eligible residents prefer private lessons, they will receive $18 off a single lesson or $72 off a four-lesson package. Income eligible individuals and families will also benefit from the YMCA’s “Access For All” program, which offers up to an additional 35% off (depending on household income level).


Currently, all Everett residents have the opportunity to use the Everett YMCA pool for open swim at a reduced rate. This new partnership will provide more pool access to Everett residents while providing opportunities for both youth and adults to learn how to swim. The Everett YMCA currently offers non-members the opportunity to sign up for swim lessons but at a non-member rate.  


The next three sessions for swim lessons are as follows:

Session 10           Oct. 3-27 registration opens for community on Sept. 17

Session 11           Nov. 1-23 registration opens for community on Oct. 15 

Session 12           Nov. 28 – Dec. 15 registration opens for community Nov. 12

To sign up for swim lessons or learn more visit

The Everett YMCA is located at 4730 Colby Ave.
