About TYDE Swim Team

As a competitive swim team, TYDE has an expectation of team spirit and sportsmanship in all of our athletes.  As a YMCA team, we have a strong focus on the Y Core Values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith. We incorporate them into our TYDE program as part of our mission to build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.  

Started in 1973 as WSY, TYDE has grown to over 600 swimmers practicing at 11 locations in seven counties across Northwest North Carolina. TYDE offers practice options for beginners just out of swim lessons to four levels of Competitive Team to Master's.  

TYDE's coaching staff incorporates the YMCA core values of honesty, caring, respect, responsibility, and faith to develop swimmers who are better prepared in life by being better prepared in the water.

As part of our commitment to our athletes, TYDE is a USA Swimming-recognized Safe Sport Team. Our top priority continues to be keeping our athletes safe. Essential to that is keeping a positive team culture where no form of abuse, including bullying and child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport or on our team. We will continue to make abuse prevention and response an important piece of everything we do.
