About Us


Strypers Swimming Overview:
The South Shore YMCA Strypers is a USA and YMCA year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of the Strypers 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.
Each new swimmer will be placed in an appropriate practice group best suited for him or her, so that each swimmer can enjoy some degree of success in a relatively short time.  Each child will perform differently, but you can be sure that your child will get out of it as much as he or she puts into it.

All of our coaches, as members of YMCA and USA swimming, 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.

The South Shore YMCA Strypers swim team is a YMCA program operating with the broader association structure. It is lead by the Director of Competitive Swimming and YMCA Management. All "dry-side" activities are coordinated by the Director of Competitive Swimming through a volunteer parent committee who meet once a month to plan and execute team events. 

We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team and to embrace the YMCA’s Four Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Thank you for joining us.
