YMCA’s of OCY Swim
Old Colony YMCA swim team follows
the strong YMCA philosophy of “Everybody Swims, Everybody
Wins!” As a team, OCY seeks to provide opportunities for
social development through travel and meeting new people. Team
dynamic provides the opportunity to develop well rounded swimmers,
and for each individual to better oneself.
The overall development of each
participant in the program is based on long term goals to produce
the most meaningful return at the end of the swimming investment.
We strive towards an ultimate goal of providing age appropriate
training that enables swimmers to reach their full potential, while
helping in the mental, emotional, and social development of all our
swimmers. Our goals are to develop within each swimmer the desire
to succeed, a willingness to work hard, self-discipline and
self-reliance, a sense of sportsmanship, and loyalty to other team
members, the coaches, and to the YMCA.
Joining swim team is a
commitment. It is recommended that swimmers who are interested
complete a swim team
assessment with a Swim Team Coach, progress through V6 YMCA
lessons, or have swam on a competitive team
Any swimmer who joins the Main Season is REQUIRED to compete in
dual meets and Senecy Championships. Swimmers must attend practice
