Parkersburg YMCA Swim Team :

Welcome to the Parkersburg YMCA Shark Swim Team website. Our team is a year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. 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 international competitor.

All of our coaches are fully certified through the YMCA and USA Swimming. They have access to the most comprehensive training and certification programs for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

We have three practice locations: the Parkersburg YMCA, The University of Rio Grande (OH) pool and The Salem International University (WV) pool.
