Now at all three Ys

Join our Y swim teams for a competitive swim team experience. The Y’s Swim Teams take 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 level and endurance. Kids are encouraged to come to every practice and will compete in meets throughout the summer. Registration includes a t-shirt and swim cap.

It is recommended that swimmers be able to swim (freestyle and backstroke) the distance assigned to their age groups. Ages 6-8 (25 yards), Ages 9-10 (50 yards), Ages 11-18 (100 yards)

Sharks Pre-Team (Ages 6-17)

Your child is a swimmer, and they love the water! However, they just aren’t ready for swim meets. Never fear. The Y has a terrific option for the little fishes in your pond. Our pre-team is a fun, skill-focused program that takes your child’s love for swimming to new depths. Participants are split into groups based on skill performance. All pre-team swimmers must be able to swim 25 meters of freestyle and backstroke unaided. This program does not replace the need for swim lessons. Pre-team does not participate in swim meets. Registration includes swim cap.
