Located at the Miles River Yacht Club, in charming & historic St. Michaels, MD, our club is a family oriented group of swimmers who enjoy both the sport and the camaraderie of competitive swimming. We offer high quality, professional coaching and technique instruction for children ages 5 to 18 years. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to experienced competitor. At MRYC, team members also are encouraged to support each other, build friendships and develop the discipline required through daily practice and dedication. Our team belongs to the Delmarva Swim Association, a group of 25 swim teams who compete across the Delaware, Maryland and Virginia peninsula.
The Miles River Yacht Club Swim Team is run by its elected Executive Board which meets several times throughout the year. All parents are required to be involved in team activities and fundraisers. Our facility is a 25 meter, five lane outdoor chlorine pool with non-turbulent lane lines. We have rest rooms, showers and changing facilities with certified life guards on duty during pool hours. There is a concession stand available during all meets.
We would like to say welcome to our new head coach Jill Curran. Jill is originally from Hanover, PA where she started her swimming career at the age of 11. She fell in love with the sport and continued swimming for her high school team which eventually led her to swim at Bucknell University.
Jill was primarily a breaststroker, holding her high school record for over 15 years but was also competitive in the 200 IM. She lives in St. Michaels, MD and has 3 children, one of whom swam with MRYC last summer, and she still finds time to swim with the Talbot Masters Swim Club in Easton when she can find the time between her children�s busy schedules!
We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Thank you for joining us. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to ask another member or coach any question you may have.
