Welcome to the YMCA of Darke County Shark Swim Team! The following orientation information is designed to give team members and parents an introduction to the DCY Swim Team.

The mission of the YMCA of Darke County is to put Christian principles into practice to benefit all Darke County residents through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

The YMCA of Darke County is located in the Ohio Southwest Cluster of YMCAs. Our meets are with teams from the Southwest District and we swim under current NCAA rules and regulations.

Our swim team serves the spirit of competition; keeping physically fit and fostering fellowship among the team. We hope to provide each swimmer the opportunity to grow both socially and emotionally through learning the values of team sportsmanship and team cooperation. Through the program, character traits of caring, responsibility, honesty, and respect will not only be learned and practiced, but also required.

All who participate will enjoy the friendship and camaraderie that grow when families are engaged in the same activities. Our goal is to have the finest swimming program with the finest and most enthusiastic swimmers and parents. You and your children make it possible and worthwhile.
