Schedule Questions


What determines our Schedule?

The YMCA Quicksilver Swim Team works with the Grand Island YMCA. Our schedule is determined by the staff which usually is working around many other YMCA Functions (primarily swim lessons).

The YMCA Quicksilver Swim Team offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the YMCA Quicksilver Swim Team to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.
