About

 

The YMCA Columbia Swim Club was formed in 1999 and competes in both USA Swimming and the YMCA swim leagues.  Our goal is to train and develop age group swimmers in accordance with the mission of the YMCA.  We also encourage swimmers to reach their potentials through the YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.  Become a part of our swim team family and enjoy our convenient practice schedule as well as other team functions.

Mission Statement

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, body, and mind for all.

Vision

Competitive swimming builds character. Instills discipline, provides leadership, enhances self-esteem, promotes physical fitness and teaches teamwork, all of which can be used throughout a lifetime.

Team Philosophy

The Columbia YMCA Swim Club's (YCSC Mudcats) philosophy is to teach the swimmers how to set long and short-term goals while practicing Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Caring. Through participation of the Bronze, Silver, and Gold groups, the swimmer gains knowledge of the four competitive strokes, learns the starts and turns for each stroke, and gains experience by competing on a swim team. The Junior and Senior groups work to achieve goals such as gaining mastery of strokes, turns, starts, and to improve their times by learning how to improve their fitness and health. We also like to have fun!!!
