Aquatics Events at the Grants Pass Family YMCA


Youth Swim Lessons

Available All Year

All sign-ups are currently being conducted in-house. Please visit the front desk for more.

Our program offers a complete swimming progression for the swimmer and allows the parent to better know how their swimmer is growing. There will be mid-session reports and certificates of completion with clear understanding of your child’s skill level. This curriculum accommodates students of varying abilities to help foster a sense of achievement as swimmers progress between levels. Through this approach, advanced swimmers flow more easily to high levels while swimmers who need more instruction can learn at their own pace. This results in more confident swimmers who stick with lessons and develop a love for swimming that can last a lifetime!
