AQUATICS PROGRAMS

Make a Splash at the YMCA

Over one million children are taught water safety and swimming skills each year. Teaching children and adults how to swim and water safety is one of the most important life skills that the YMCA can provide to save lives and create awareness while building confidence and character. We strive to make aquatics part of your fitness routine by offering various FREE activities for members like lap swim, open swim, and group classes. Additional programs are available for all ages and levels such as swim lessons, swim team, Adult Competitive Swim Club, Masters Swimming, and more!

Our enrichment programs run throughout the year as “sessions” that are typically 6-7 weeks long with interim weeks in between. If you do not see any programs available, we are likely in the middle of a session. Please review our session schedule to see all upcoming sessions and registration dates.

WATER SAFETY FOR ALL

Financial Assistance

At The Granite YMCA, we believe the inability to pay should not be a barrier to accessing lifesaving water safety programs such as swim lessons, the Y’s Safety Around Water Program, and lifeguarding trainings. We are proud to offer financial assistance and program discounts to those who qualify, as well as free or low-cost lifeguard certification courses.
