Recreational Swim Team

Recreational Swim Team

Our recreational swim team is great for a new swimmer who wants to try a swim team or a more experienced swimmer who is looking for a less competitive option. This recreational swim team helps kids learn competitive swimming skills. Participants will work with coaches on all four competitive strokes, dive starts, and turns.

Requirement: Ages 5-8 must be able to swim 23 yards of Freestyle and Backstroke. Ages 8–12 must be able to swim 50 yards freestyle and backstroke. Ages 13+ must swim 50 yards freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke, and 25 yards butterfly.

There are no try-outs for the team, but any participant who is unable to perform the mentioned requirements may be asked to switch to our lesson program until they are prepared for the swim team, at which time they can later join.


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE. At the Y, no one is denied service due to the inability to pay. Funds for Financial Assistance are provided through the YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign. Learn more here!

If you are pre-qualified for Financial Assistance, please note that some of our programs have minimum fees in order to cover costs of materials and supplies. This fee may be higher depending on your amount of assistance.

A SAFE PLACE FOR ALL. Keep up-to-date with our current Safety Policies.
