Kids: Dive into the Y’s Swim Teams 

For kids looking to join a competitive swim program, the Y is ideal. Our trained coaches work to improve swimmers' skill level, endurance and to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our program embraces the YMCA core values and promotes progression at an individual level.

  • All sessions are taught in the Y’s family-friendly and positive environment 
  • Kids learn the fundamentals of swimming and how to compete individually and on a team
  • Excellent coaching -- All our coaches are trained and certified to help kids meet their swimming goals. And, as Y coaches, they embrace the Y values of respect, responsibility, caring, and honesty. We encourage kids to be their very best both in and out of the water.
  • All ages and abilities - YMCA swim teams welcome swimmers ages 5 to 17 of all skill levels at three Y locations.
