Strong Swimmers, Confident Kids

1,000,000+ children are taught water safety and swimming skills yearly. Teaching children and adults how to swim and be safe around water is one of the most important life skills we can provide. This not only saves lives and creates awareness of water safety, it builds confidence and character. As part of The Granite YMCA’s ongoing commitment to aquatics and water safety, we are continually reviewing and updating our policies and procedures to ensure that we are providing a safe and quality environment for our members and their families.

  • 9 in 10 parents see swimming as a key life skill for children, on par with first aid skills or being able to prepare a simple meal.
  • 24% of parents have low confidence with water activities or bodies of water.
  • 1 in 2 parents believe water safety classes are expensive in comparison to the other groups surveyed.
  • 3 in 10 parents state that water safety isn’t a priority due to affordability concerns.

If you would like to learn more about our aquatics programs, please continue reading or contact your branch's Aquatics Director.

 

Swim Lessons

Available for Infants - Adults

Swim lessons are one of the most popular programs at the YMCA because we are successful in teaching children and adults to be safe and to enjoy the water. Our aquatics team at The Granite YMCA has evaluated our swim lesson program and has implemented a skill-based swim program designed to teach safety, technique, and positive swim values while promoting self-esteem, and fun. Take a look at our swim lesson selector chart or swim lesson stage descriptions if you are wondering which swim class you should enroll your child in.

For older swimmers, learn to swim and train with the nationwide leader in aquatics! Let the trained professionals at the Y help you improve your swimming ability with one-on-one training sessions or a customized workout designed around your personal goals.
