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.

We would like to welcome back our head coach, Kara Erskine! Coach Kara is a swim instructor at the YMCA and coach of the Easton High School swim team. Although she came into competitive swimming somewhat late in life, she has made up for lost time through hard work and dedication to her sport! She currently swims and trains with the Manta Rays Masters. She loves to compete, and has competed at the national (Masters) as well as international level. She believes in promoting proper technique to improve the efficiency of a swimmer. She also loves creating interesting and dynamic workouts in the pool that are sure to keep a swimmer motivated! Above all, Coach Kara just loves having fun in the water - she might be a mermaid or a fish!

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 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.
