The Joliet Y Jets Swim Team is a year-round program that offers
instruction and training to all swimmers, ages six and up, from
beginners to elite. There are two seasons: The
fall/winter season runs September to March and the spring/summer
season runs April to August. We are both a YMCA and USA
Swimming club, which means our swimmers get the opportunity to
compete in a wide variety of meets, although competition is not
mandatory. Likewise, there are no mandatory practice
attendance requirements, with the exception of our national
swimmers. The Jets Y Swim Team supports the YMCA mission of
building strong kids, strong families, and strong communities, and
our coaches strive not only to build strong swimmers, but Caring,
Honest, Respectful and Responsible individuals.
To develop individuals to their highest potential as athletes and
leaders in life.
The vision of the JETS is to be known as the best youth sports
experience in the area by providing professional coaches who
inspire kids to share the same passion and dedication they have for
the sport; by providing a unified team atmosphere that creates fun
memories, long-lasting relationships, and a sense of community and
belonging; by providing the education, instruction, and training
necessary for excellence in the sport; and by developing the values
and character traits of individuals who will make a positive impact
on the world around them.
