The Goals of YBCC Swimming
We begin with the end in mind, knowing that
swimming is a journey and an ever evolving process. At the end of
their journey with us, we want each swimmer to be at their best:
physically, mentally, and technically. Therefore, our program will
be built on fundamentals and a commitment to great technique.
Starting with the youngest swimmers, we will emphasize the basics
of swimming and the development of skills. As the swimmer matures
we will focus on specific higher level skills and finer points of
precise technique. Physical training will be done at each level,
with emphasis on more aerobic conditioning as the swimmer matures.
Mental training will also be included as part of the journey to
help develop confident, self-reliant, and resilient
