Our team members also enjoy several fun team-building events throughout the year. Sibling discounts and financial assistance is available.
Our Vision: Geneva Y Swim Team's vision is to be the premier team within our area. We strive to uphold the Christian principles of the YMCA as we continue to grow and develop our athletes into elite swimmers with great character who practice good sportsmanship.
