We offer competitive swim team programs in Marquette County and the Copper Country. Our mission is to offer all athletes an opportunity to improve their swimming skills and reach their potential in an environment that promotes a fun, healthy and active lifestyle. Our athletes range from beginner swimmers to State Champions to National Championship level competitors.

Our Marquette County swimmers practice at the YMCA, Marquette High School and Northern Michigan University pools. Our Copper Country swimmers practice at Houghton High School pool.

All YMCA Killer Whales coaches are Lifeguard, CPR, First Aid and AED certified and undergo regular inservice training to improve both coaching and lifesaving skills. Our head coach is YMCA and USA Swimming Certified. All our lead coaches have been certified in YMCA Principals of Coaching and Safety Training for Swim Coaches.

We are a YMCA swim team that competes in Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Team operations are directed by YMCA staff with the advice of Parent Advisory Boards in Marquette and the Copper Country.
