The Naperville YMCA swim team program:
--Offers SCHEDULE FLEXIBILITY to allow team members to choose to swim 2-5 days a week and therefore leaves room for a well-rounded, participation in community and school activities.
--Offers a high level of engagement in TECHNICAL ASPECTS of swim races; the coaching staff recognizes that each race has several components to it: start, turn, finish in addition to the actual swimming. The Y swim team coaching staff focuses on critiquing each child's strokes so that the technical aspects of each stroke are conveyed to the swimmer on a regular basis; this instruction happens in the midst of practices that will make your child tired!
--The head coach, Coach Brad (35+ years of coaching/education experience), is ALWAYS ON THE KROEHLER Y POOL DECK during the practices. He is actively coaching an age group when on deck. He creates all practices so the practices offered at Fry are consistent with the practices run at Kroehler. Several EXCELLENT assistant coaches grew up swimming for the Porpoises!

ALL Novice swimmers are required to take a swim lesson once a week in addition to practices. since swim team coaches do not teach swim strokes from the beginning. This will ensure Novice swimmers learn the strokes and techniques they need to move to the Intermediate level of swim team.
In swim lesson sessions swimmers will be taught all 4 competitive strokes, starts and turns. For more details email Coach Brad at

All registrations for swim team are done only at the Kroehler Family YMCA!
