Membership Information

The YMCA of Kanawha Valley (YKV) Kraken Swim Team is a competitive swim program where our number one goal is to instill the enjoyment of swimming and team camaraderie in our swimmers.  While having fun, kids naturally improve stroke technique, performance times and self confidence.

The purpose of the Kraken Swim Team program is to provide each and every swimmer the opportunity to improve without our competitive swimming program, while incorporating the basic YMCA principals of "Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility."  We practice to perfect our strokes, leading to improvement of competitive times.  Each swimmer's goals are taken into consideration and a plan is set forth to accomplish these goals. 

Find Your Fit!  These sessions will help us determine what level your swimmer should begin our program under.  Call to schedule.
