Rapids Area YMCA Swimmers (RAYS) is a non ? profit, year round USA Swimming and YMCA Swimming program serving the greater Grand Rapids area. Our programs are directed by certified coaches and are dedicated to helping each swimmer develop his or her personal and competitive potential. Our ?Live Well ? Swim Fast? motto describes our belief that character drives success in the pool. Our philosophy is that participation in youth sports should be a life-improving experience, not just activity. We conduct a pre-team for developing swimmers, a seasonal age group program for swimmers up to 18, seasonal opportunities for college swimmers and a masters team for adults. We offer a year round program for swimmers 11 and over who have decided to focus their athletic pursuits on competitive swimming. We are proud to support the YMCA mission of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility through our program.
