DOLPHIN SWIM TEAM

HAVING FUN AS A TEAM

The YMCA swim team is based on the YMCA principles of competitive swimming and character development. We believe that everybody swims and everybody wins. Our
coaching staff will help to develop our swimmers to be the very best swimmer while
continuing to stress the Y values of respect, responsibility, honesty and caring.

Spring Competitive Stroke Clinic

Our 4-week Spring Stroke Clinics will give those who are thinking about joining our swim team the opportunity to work with our coaching staff for four weeks to get a “taste” of our program. This also gives our coaches an opportunity to orient new swimmers to our program, and evaluate new swimmers readiness for swim team, and placement in a practice session. The clinics will also provide experienced swimmers an opportunity to improve technique.
