We are Central Virgina's premier year-round swim team, founded in 1961. We focus on the long-term development of successful competitive swimmers, providing stroke instruction and age-appropriate training to allow swimmers to progress to their highest potential. LY is a program of the YMCA of Central Virginia and a member club of USA Swimming and Virginia Swimming. Our coaching staff is experienced and professional, certified by both USA Swimming and the YMCA; you can rest assured that your swimmers are safe and receiving sound instruction to improve their swimming. LY swimmers compete at all levels, from the LAL Championships to the U.S. Olympic Trials and everything in between. LY swimmers learn self-discipline, commitment, delayed gratification, goal-setting, friendly competition, and teamwork.
