Swim Team | YMCA of South Hampton Roads
Help Desk Software

Swim Teams are competitive programs that focus on the development of all ages and abilities. Our trained coaches work to improve swimmers' skill level, endurance and to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our program embraces YMCA core values and promotes progression at an individual level. Individual teams are organized by ability levels and are designed to help team members improve and refine the four competitive strokes, sets, starts and finishes. Our Swim Teams compete with other Ys and swim clubs at area meets.

Workouts include endurance, speed and drill techniques, with a healthy dose of teamwork and sportsmanship. Swimmers must be evaluated before joining.
