What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. -Goethe

The Eau Claire YMCA Marlins Swim Team welcomes swimmers of all ages and ability levels! This summer practices for swimmers 9 & older will be held outside at the beautiful Fairfax Swimming Complex.  Breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the warm sunshine!

Our focus is to coach each individual at his or her level with the goal of improving swimming skills, both competitive and lifelong.  Within each of our age groups there are beginning swimmers, intermediate swimmers, and more experienced swimmers.

The Marlins have no specific attendance requirements for meets or practices.  We recognize that the athletes have different objectives for participation, and we wish for all swimmers to feel comfortable in their experiences.  For this reason, swimmers may elect to compete in meets or not.  In regard to practice, however, athletes and parents alike should understand that the more attendance, participation, and effort equate to greater progress and success in the pool.

Our coaches attend coaching clinics each year in order to be up-to-date on current coaching practices.  We study instruction in swimming technique and aerobic endurance, motivation, race tactic, and athlete safety.  Novice swimmers will focus on learning starts, breakouts, technique, turns, and finishes for all four competitive strokes. Veteran swimmers will continue to hone these skill sets.  One of our goals, as always, is to create strong swimmers in the individual medley events, so all swimmers will continue to improve all strokes!  As added options, this summer YMCA trainers will offer dry land workouts for core body strength and yoga for flexibility.

A focus on stroke technique combined with moderate training sets will increase the swimmer's capacity for work, and our hope is that the swimmers will be able to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

Swimming on our team encourages growth, healthy body, healthy mind, and healthy friendships! We hope you will join us!
