Our Springfield Family YMCA Swim Team aka SPY or SPYNATION is an outstanding competitive YMCA youth competitive sport program offering annual or seasonal participation. Our athletes participate in both YMCA and USA Swimming swim meets in order to offer local, regional, and national level competition opportunities. 
Swimmers participate with groups according to their age, skills, and ability. Many qualities are developed through competitive swimming such as: physical conditioning, self-confidence, and sportsmanship character building and self-discipline.

To be a SPY competitive swimmer, your child must be a Springfield Family Y member to participate on our SPY Swim Team.
