Thanks for your interest in our swim team program. Below is some
information on when we are having tryouts.
Anyone interested in trying out for the Short course competitive
swim team at the Sussex County YMCA please have them contact Coach
Ray at [email protected] or
In their correspondence,
they will include the age of the child and any past competitive
swim team experience, how many years and what team.
