The YMCA Swim Team is based on the YMCA Principles of Competitive Swimming and Character Development.  We believe that Everybody swims and Everybody wins.  Our coaching staff will help to develop our swimmers to be the very best swimmer while continueing to stress the Y values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring.

Free Stroke Clinic

For those joining our team for the first time.  This gives our coaches the opportunity to see new swimmers in the water to determine their readiness for swim team, evaluate which practice will be best for each swimmer, and also give  swimmers a “taste” of competitive swimming.  Although free, we still ask that participants pre-register so that we know how many swimmers to expect.
