Since 1971, the UMLY Swimming tradition has always been to develop "Good Swimmers and Great Kids". The lessons learned through competitive swimming will last a lifetime. Over the last 45+ years, UMLY swimmers have achieved great success at all ages and in many different levels of competition. The goal of our program is to develop in our athletes a foundation of life skills, and provide them the opportunity to compete and excel based on their talent and dedication, while building healthy and positive relationships with their coaches and teammates.

Swimmers compete locally in dual meets and YMCA invitationals - and if qualified - YMCA National Meets, where UMLY consistently ranks in the Top-10 of all YMCA programs in the United States.

UMLY also participates in USA Swimming meets, on a local, regional, and national level. Swimmers have competed in the Eastern Zone, Junior National, Senior National championships, and Olympic Trials. Over the years, UMLY swimmers have also been invited to train at USA Swimming's Zone Select Camp, Diversity Camp, National Select Camp, and compete with the Junior National team.

USA Swimming's Olympic Trials meet, held every four years before the Olympic Games is the fastest level of competition for swimmers. UMLY has a storied tradition of competing in the meet. Since 1984, UMLY has had swimmers compete at 8 of the last 9 Olympic Trials, including the last 7 (1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016).

Internationally, UMLY is known throughout the world. Since 2002, UMLY has had six athletes represent the United States in international competition, including a 2014 German National champion, and a 2017 Deaflympics Swimmer.

Lou Petto, UMLY's head coach, is part of the USA Paralympic coaching staff. Since 2013, Lou has represented the United States at various international Paralympic swim meets, including the 2016 Paralympics Games in Rio, Brazil. Lou has also helped train the United States Paralympic Swim Team at its headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO.

To help kids reach to their goals, there are a variety of different training groups that fit nearly every level of competitive swimmer. The program is led by a coaching staff with a unique blend of skills, passion, and experience. The coaches total of well over a century's experience in the sport.
