“Everybody Swims, Everybody Wins”


The YMCA’s Sharks Swim Team participates in the Boulder Valley Summer Swim League (BVSSL) and takes swimmers to the next level with a focus on technique, skill, endurance and speed. Our swimmers nurture their swimming abilities while also learning the importance of hard work, teamwork and sportsmanship. Participants are divided into groups based on age, skill performance and endurance. Kids are encouraged to come to every practice and will compete in meets throughout the summer. 

Practices are held at the Lafayette Y.
