About Heartland Area Swimming

The Heartland Area Committee was formed in 2013 to provide a structured environment where YMCA swim teams may come together and enjoy equal opportunities and fair play in competitions.

The Committee seeks to provide member teams with healthy competitions founded on the philosophy that character development is an essential element of the sport, including the YMCA’s four core values…Caring …Honesty….Responsibility …and Respect. The Committee will seek to operate in accordance with the YMCA of the USA’s Rules that Govern YMCA Competitive Sports, and the Competitive Swimming Black Book, as well the current USA Swimming Technical Rules.
