Okmulgee Swim instruction at Okmulgee YMCA Photo by Paul Orosco - ONN Chief Photographer
Did you know that modern swim instruction was invented at the YMCA? Maybe this is why so many people have learned to swim at the Y, and continue to come back to enjoy our outstanding facilities.
And did you know that modern swim safety programs were invented at the YMCA? This must be why so many people rely on the YMCA to keep their families safe.
The Aquatics programs of the YMCA of Okmulgee are about more than just the techniques and skills; they are about building friendships, developing self-esteem, and creating positive experiences that will last a lifetime.
Brian Thomason, Fireman and Pastor Richard Manning, Calvary Baptist Church are coaching a YMCA swim team.
In their regular line of work as a pastor and fireman, technically some may say they are both "First Responders". They are teaching the competitiveness of swimming and their students are working hard while having fun at it.
