Developing Individual and Team Character

Swim Teams

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.

Swim Clubs

Swim clubs allow children ages 5 and up to experience many aquatic activities such as conditional swimming, kayaking, and water polo. Through these activities we will work to grow self-confidence, goal setting, and team building, and prepare children for swim teams, practicing like a team, but without competition.

Swimmers will improve their endurance, strength and skills. Workouts will incorporate all four competitive strokes along with all turns, stroke technique, endurance, breathing techniques, sprinting, fin training, stretches and more. Participants should be able to swim 25 yards.

We also offer Masters Swim Programs for adults, with coached practices to refine swim skills and provide friendly competition with fellow Y members.
