Located at the Miles River Yacht Club, in charming & historic St. Michaels, MD, our club has a rich history of swimmers who enjoy both the sport and the camaraderie of competitive swimming. We offer quality, professional coaching and technique instruction for children ages 5 to 18 years.

The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to experienced competitor. At MRYC, team members also are encouraged to support each other, build friendships and develop the discipline required through daily practice and dedication. Our team belongs to the Delmarva Swim Association, a group of 25 swim teams who compete across the Delaware, Maryland and Virginia peninsula.


The Miles River Yacht Club Swim Team is run by its a team of experienced parents which meets several times throughout the year. Swimming on our team is a family affair as our meets are run by volunteers. At least one parent per swimmer is required to volunteer at meets or behind the scenes. Volunteer duties are as easy is clicking a stop watch and as complicates as managing an entire meet. Almost everyone agrees that these duties are actually a lot of fun.

The first practice of the 2022 season is scheduled for Tuesday, May 31. The practice schedule is subject to change based on team size or the number of the swimmers in certain age groups.
