Swim Team

What we are about….

The YMCA of the Roses offers many different competitive swimming options. For the very young or those returning to swimming after an extended break, the Novice and Advanced groups offer an easy way back into the sport or as an introduction to competitive swimming. This offering features reduced fees, shorter practice times, and local competition.

For the experienced swimmers who want to get the absolute most out of their swim training and competition experience, the Junior and Senior groups offer increased practice time and USA and YMCA competition both regionally and nationally.

The following values are emphasized throughout the program:

Technical: learning good technique, efficiency, and beauty in the water.
Physical: developing speed and endurance through training all four strokes of the individual medley and training for an endurance based program.
Cognitive: learning about swimming and the rationale for stroke technique, training, and nutrition, etc.
Psychological: learning and practicing the attitudes of a champion; goal setting and maintaining poise under pressure.
