Welcome to the YMCA of
Youngstown "Neptunes" Swim Team!
Our team is a year round
competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching
and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of
our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve
swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability,
from novice to international competitor.
All of our coaches, as members of
the American Swimming Coaches Association, have access to the most
comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches
of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the
time children spend in swimming will be quality time.
We are a non profit club run by
our elected Board of Directors which meets each month. All members
are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team
activities and fundraiser.
The winter season begins September
11 with a four-week trial period, and continues through early
March. Starting in late October, the team competes against other
YMCA teams in a dual-meet format, with meets taking place roughly
every other Saturday through January. A Divisional Championship
meet takes place either the first Saturday or Sunday in February,
with all team members competing. Those who post fast enough times
at the Divisional meet qualify for the League Championship meet
held the first Saturday in March.
Swimmers also have the opportunity
to compete in YMCA invitational meets, as well as USA Swimming
meets during the season (as the Y-Neptunes Swim Team is also a USA
Swim Team). Participation in these meets is optional.
*In order to compete in USA meets,
an additional USA Swimming registration fee is required. All USA
and YMCA Invitationals also require entry fees (our regular dual
meets do not require entry fees), as well as a $50 surcharge for
swimmers who attend USA or Y Invitationals (which pays for the
entry paperwork and for a coach to attend meets).
