Recreational Swim Team
The Recreational Track provides an entry-level swim team experience. This track provides the whole Aquatics experience of stroke development and age-appropriate conditioning without a focus on competition or time commitment. This track is ideal for swimmers who have just completed the YMCA swim lesson program. Fun swim meets and other events are offered and participation is optional. Participants must be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle.
YMCA Silver Fins Competitive Swim Team
The YMCA Silver Fins subscribe to a philosophy of teaching and training that provides for maximum long-term performances for its swimmers both in and out of the pool. We are divided into eight (8) different groups based on a variety of factors that include age, ability, maturity, performance, and attitude. The center of our coaching philosophy resides with the building of a foundation of strong technique and a love for racing through a strong aerobic base. Leadership and accountability are two essential “life skills” we strive to develop in our athletes.
As swimmers progress through the programs they will be given more responsibility for their swims and performances. Our athletes learn self-discipline, time management, sportsmanship, and goal setting – important lessons that will ultimately prepare them for life after swimming.
