Kankakee Area YMCA Swim Team :

Our team is a YMCA competitive swim team offering high quality coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The philosophy of the Kankakee Area YMCA Stingrays is to make swimming enjoyable for all participants regardless of ability. To meet that end, we will provide an environment where our children have the opportunity to become better swimmers by becoming more educated in proper stroke technique and practicing that technique during practice and at swim meets. The successful swimmer in our program will be the swimmer who strives to the best of his or her ability to improve his or her stroke technique and supports the efforts of other members of the team. Our athletes, coaches, parents and board members support this philosophy.

We have a Parent Advisory Committee, which meets monthly except during early summer. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend meetings, volunteer and support fundraisers.
