The YOGI Swim Club is an Association-wide competitive team that offers year-round and seasonal programs and the opportunity for local and regional competition. Our Age Group division has two training groups for developmental and advanced swimmers, with weekly practices designed by YMCA/ASCA certified staff.
Swimmers must be able to swim two continuous pool lengths of freestyle and show a commitment to develop all four competitive strokes. An evaluation will place swimmers with the appropriate training group. Contact the Aquatics Department for a swim club schedule, fees, and registration information.
The Sharks are a swim team designed for swimmers who have the knowledge of competitive swimming, can swim a distance of 50 yards or more without stopping at each end of the pool. These swimmers should be able to swim competitive strokes on their stomachs as well as their backs.
We strive to ingrain a love and passion for the sport of swimming. Our goal is to create a spirit of healthy competition and sportsmanship that is centered on the Y’s Four Core Values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Coaches will help swimmers work on endurance and form to prepare for upcoming meets. Workouts will include a combination of endurance, speed, and drill techniques. Levels are based on age and ability. Our coaches will attend all practices and meets – giving their all for our team. Swimmers under the age of 8 must be able to swim 25 yards on their stomach without stopping.
Practicing twice a week, the developmental group will focus on key swim team skills that include starts, turns, and stroke development. Meeting three times a week, the advanced group will practice with an emphasis on endurance building and stroke mechanics.
