The UMLY Swimming tradition dates back forty years. Over that time, the mission of the program has always been to develop "good swimmers and great kids." The lessons learned through competitive swimming will last a lifetime. Over the past decade, UMLY swimmers have had success at all ages in many different levels of competition. The goal of the program is to give kids a foundation of skills for life and provide them the opportunity to compete and excel based on their talent, skills and level of commitment. Swimmers compete locally in dual meets and YMCA invitationals as well as USA Swimming meets, and regional and national events up to and including Olympic Trials. UMLY has been a consistent top 10 finisher nationally and has had five athletes represent the United States in international competition since 2002.

To help kids reach to their goals, there are a variety of different training groups that fit nearly every level of competitive swimmer. The program is led by a coaching staff with a unique blend of skills, passion, and experience. The coaches include two physicians, a PhD, three teachers, and a total of well over a century's experience in the sport.
