The major focus surrounding this program will be encompassed by the YMCA's philosophy of healthy spirit, mind & body. In addition, as laid out by the Rules that Govern YMCA Competitive Sports, we will be producing an atmosphere conducive to Competition and Opportunity for all. Our goal is to create a program that will be the perfect environment for multiple levels of competitive swimmers 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 their lives. The YMCA National Swimming and Diving motto is Everybody Swims, Everybody Wins, and we strive to attain that at The Madison Area YMCA Mariners Swim Team.
