AS A TEAM

FALL/WINTER SWIM TEAM

The YMCA Swim Team is based on the YMCA Principles of competitive swimming and character values. We believe that everybody swims and everybody wins. Our Coaching staff is dedicated to emphasizing values through individual development in swimming skills, sportsmanship, leadership and team spirit.

  • All fees are season fees. Prices cannot be pro-rated for late registrants or those who choose not to finish the season.

  • Coaches may move swimmers to a different practice session according to ability level if needed.

  • All swimmers MUST be YMCA Members
