The YMCA of Burlington
& Camden County is a regionally and nationally
competitive team which competes under the governing bodies of USA

The Mission of YBCC Swimming
We strive for the best and most
successful experience for every swimmer and their families. We
recognize that each individual has different goals and aspirations.
We will create a path to the achievement and success of those
individual goals. We will encourage the development of the
characteristics exemplified by being a great teammate and we
will abide by living the YMCA core values.
Caring: to show a sincere concern for
others, for their needs and well-being.
Honesty: to be truthful in what you say and
Respect: to follow the golden rule.
Responsibility: to do what is right, be accountable
for your promises and actions.
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 athletes.
