Swim Team

Swim Team

Hold on tight, gang – you’ve entered the world of one of nature’s most powerful forces – the hurricanes!

Our Swim Team programs focus on the development of competitive swimming skills for all ages and abilities. Our trained coaches work to improve swimmers’ technique, endurance, and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle. Our program embraces the YMCA’s core values and promotes progression at an individual level. Individual groups are organized by ability levels and are designed to help team members improve and refine the four competitive strokes, sets, starts, and finishes.

Swim Team Prep

For swimmers six and older who would like to develop their strokes and build endurance at a faster pace than they would in swim lessons, but not have to commit to a 7-month swim team season and swim meets.

YDC Swim Team Trials
For swimmers new to YDC or swim team in general. The coaches will evaluate their strokes, endurance, and age and give a recommendation of which practice group to register for.  If you were on YDC team last year, you do not need to attend. Past participants talk with your coaches if you are not sure which group to sign up for! 

YDC COMPETITIVE SWIM TEAM
