About

YMCA’s of OCY Swim Team

 

Old Colony YMCA swim team follows the strong YMCA philosophy of “Everybody Swims, Everybody Wins!” As a team, OCY seeks to provide opportunities for social development through travel and meeting new people. Team dynamic provides the opportunity to develop well rounded swimmers, and for each individual to better oneself.

 

The overall development of each participant in the program is based on long term goals to produce the most meaningful return at the end of the swimming investment. We strive towards an ultimate goal of providing age appropriate training that enables swimmers to reach their full potential, while helping in the mental, emotional, and social development of all our swimmers. Our goals are to develop within each swimmer the desire to succeed, a willingness to work hard, self-discipline and self-reliance, a sense of sportsmanship, and loyalty to other team members, the coaches, and to the YMCA.

 

Joining swim team is a commitment. It is recommended that swimmers who are interested complete a swim team
assessment with a Swim Team Coach, progress through V6 YMCA lessons, or have swam on a competitive team
before. 

 

Competition Requirement: Any swimmer who joins the Main Season is REQUIRED to compete in dual meets and Senecy Championships. Swimmers must attend practice 2 days a week.
