The Y has been the leader in swim instruction and water exercise for more than 100 years! 


Living in a beautiful Oregon community, we want our children to learn and practice safety in and around the water. Swim lessons at the Y give children the skills to be safe in the water, plus a sense of accomplishment from learning something new. Along with the new confidence of being able to swim, children will gain lifelong ways to stay healthy. We also share our Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility to help them enhance their life skills. We offer swim lessons for all ages. Check out our pool schedule below for community swim, members only swim and other swim times.

Swim Lessons


Swim Lessons encompass the YMCA’s philosophy of developing the participant’s spirit, mind, and body. Instructors focus on skill development, confidence building, increasing endurance, and instilling a sense of personal safety in each student. At the Y, we believe that each child in our swim programs should be taught to swim at their own level in a fun, safe environment. With learn to swim programs for all ages, the Y can help you get comfortable in the water no matter what age you are. Check out our swim lesson schedule below for more information about private lessons and group class times and dates.

Safety Around Water

  • Exercises to help children adjust to being in water

  • Basic Water Rescue

Water Fitness Classes


Looking for a new way to work out that is easy on your body, but gives you great results? Our water exercise classes have everything that you’re looking for! Flexibility, range of motion, muscle conditioning, improved cardiovascular endurance, and muscle tone by using the buoyancy and resistance of the water – these are just some of the benefits of jumping into the fun at the YMCA.

Water exercise is a great way to work out with no impact or harmful effects on joints/muscles while staying cool. It is ideal for all fitness levels, non-swimmers included. Check out our water classes schedule on the last page of the group fitness schedule for more information about class times and dates.

Swim Team


The Roseburg Y Swim Team uses a progressive Age Group Program designed to develop the child physically, mentally, and emotionally in a systematic fashion. A well-defined, long-term approach of gradually increasing degrees of commitment is essential to reach peak performance levels during a swimmer’s physiological prime. The emphasis in the early stages of participation must be placed on developing technical skills and a love for the sport. In the later years, a more demanding physical and psychological challenge must be introduced to the training program. In this respect, "too much too soon" is sometimes the cause of failure to achieve maximum potential or fulfillment in senior swimming. Thus, coaches are careful not to advance swimmers more rapidly than their mental or physical capabilities allow.
