The Ocean Community YMCA now has openings for Water Exercise Instructors at the Westerly-Pawcatuck Branch.

The general function of the Water Exercise Instructor is to provide members with exciting, safe and productive water exercise classes. Classes offered are varied in scope and some are specialized due to the demands of the industry. Staff also will maintain a safe and clean environment for our members.
