Our swim team was organized in 1992 when the outdoor pool was built at the YMCA.  Mr. Jerry Coffey, executive director of the YMCA was instrumental in organizing the team.  Since the very beginning, striving for excellence has been our goal.  We believe that through competitive swimming we can help develop the four values of the YMCA which are caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in our swimmers.  Through swimming we not only help the athletes develop their technique but we also help them develop life lessons.

Every swimmer, no matter what level they swim, gets the same amount of attention and coaching from our staff.  We believe that the strong triangle team of swimmer, parent, and coach  enable each child to succeed to their fullest.

We have swimmers who have qualified for State, Regional and National competitions.

We practice smart, we practice hard and we have fun!

Come be apart of the Championship Newberry Eel Swim Team!
