2020-2021 SEASON CANCELLED
The COVID-19 crisis is an ever-changing situation with unprecedented and unpredictable circumstances impacting us all, turning our world upside down. As a cause-driven organization dedicated to Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility, we want nothing more than to be able to operate our youth sports programs that serve youth in our communities. We have measured the health risks, organizational readiness and facility capacity before making the decision to cancel this year’s YMCA Competitive Swim Team program.
We are incredibly grateful for the countless hours of dedication from our swim team families and we hope to be reunited with you all as soon as it is possible to continue this amazing sport!
WHAT IS Y SWIM TEAM?
Becoming a member of the YMCA Swim Team means fun, fitness and teamwork. The YMCA swim team is a competitive swim program designed to challenge and grow swimmers both in and out of the water. Trained coaches focus on stroke technique as well as endurance and fitness during practices to improve swimmer's times as they work toward their end of season goals. The YMCA swim team promotes healthy lifestyles while embracing the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Practices take place multiple times each week typically in the evenings and challenge swimmers to improve their technique as well as their endurance. Swimmers are expected to come to practice to work hard toward their goals and work together with their teammates to challenge each other to improve. Our teams showcase their skills at swim meets that all swimmers are encouraged to participate in. At swim meets, swimmers go from being program participants to teammates and friends AND compete for personal best's in the pool!
WHO CAN JOIN?
