Aquatics Program
 

Town of Yucca Valley manages the use of the swimming pool located on the Yucca Valley High School campus. The Town conducts a summer aquatics program from June through August each year. The summer program consists of morning swim lessons for all ages, afternoon recreational swim sessions, and special sessions for water exercise classes and lap swimming. Special events are scheduled throughout the summer.

The pool can be rented for reserved use by community groups, subject to availability during the summer season. Details and requirements for such use are available by contacting the Community Services Department office at (760) 369-7211 ext 246.

PLEASE READ
The descriptions below provide an overview of the class levels and the skills that may be taught during the session. When registering children for swim lessons, place them in a level where they will learn, but that is not unrealistic. Keep in mind that many children have not been in the water since last summer and may need to repeat a level to get acclimated. The Town of Yucca Valley reserves the right to reassign any participant that has been laced in an inappropriate class level.
