The Montclair YMCA Dolphins Swim Team (MYM) offers a year-round opportunity for competitive swimming in both YMCA and USA Swimming competitions as well as seasonal instructional clinics for aspiring competitive athletes. The team is comprised of girls and boys from age 6 through high school.
As a YMCA program its goal is to strengthen the foundations of our community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility and is supported by the YMCA of the USA.
The focus is, first and foremost, on the development of healthy, confident, values-centered individuals where training and competition are the vehicles by which this development occurs. In addition, as laid out by the Guiding Principles for YMCA Amateur Sports Competition, we strive to produce an atmosphere conducive to competition and opportunity for all. Everyone involved in the delivery of the program plays a critical role in this process. Coaches, YMCA leaders and volunteers assist individuals in their development by building positive relationships, acting with integrity and leading by example.
Our goal is to deliver a program that creates an excellent environment for developing multiple levels of competitive swimmer from beginners to swimmers who are nationally ranked. We believe the process of following the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in all aspects of our swim program will inevitably lead to success not only in swimming but in all areas of our swimmers' lives.
