Participate in individualized stroke clinics or become a part of the YMCA Swim Team as you become a competitive swimmer.

The YMCA Swim Teams & Programs are ideal for those beyond the age for progressive swim classes yet too young for adult classes. Highly trained aquatics instructors work one-on-one with each participant to set personal goals and meet new challenges. This enables participants to progress at their own pace so that they can develop the skills necessary to swim safely for fun and exercise.

Swim Clinics

The YMCA Swim Clinics provide opportunities for swimmers to become students of the sport, learning and growing in a non-competitive, fun environment. The drills and techniques are used by collegiate and pro swimmers, but are just as important for age group and masters swimmers.

If you are like most swimmers, you can always improve your swimming through technique. One of the best means of doing so is attending a swim clinic. A swim clinic offers you a dedicated, focused block of time outside your normal workout schedule where you can focus solely on technique and technique improvement, and ask questions while getting immediate feedback from a coach or expert.
