Our team is a year-round competitive swimming program. In keeping with the YMCA's philosophy of building a healthy "Spirit, Mind, and Body", the New Bedford YMCA Hurricane Swimming program provides an opportunity for swimmers to develop and improve themselves in and out of the water. As members of the team, participants will have opportunities to discover and develop abilities (psychological, emotional, and physical) they will depend on as they grow to become active members of their community. Swimmers will learn to set, work towards, and achieve their goals in a positive, supportive, and fun atmosphere. Through dedication to hard work and cooperation with their peers, swimmers will find success in accomplishment both as individuals and as a team.
