The Northwest YMCA Neptunes is a competitive swim team for the advanced swimmer who has achieved at least the flying fish level of the YMCA youth swim lessons program. The team is comprised of entry level to advanced competitive swimmers. We strive to foster an environment that integrates teamwork and the YMCA’s four core values of caring, responsibility, respect and honesty.

Most swim meets take place in Wichita or the surrounding area. As members of Missouri Valley Swimming, participation in some meets occasionally occurs throughout the Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma area.



“Joining the Neptunes has been a life changing event for our son. The experience has made him healthier and stronger, given him additional self confidence, taught him important lessons like hard work and being part of a team, and introduced him to some wonderful new friends.” - Neptunes Parent
