Club Information

The Regina Y's Men's Marlins (RYMM) is a competitive and recreational speed swimming club associated with the Regina YMCA. All members of the RYMM must be registered at the YMCA.The money paid to the YMCA provides a significant discount to our pool rentals, which means your child's swim fees can be kept low. To find out what services are included in your YMCA membership, please speak with a staff member at the front desk.

Association with the YMCA implies adherence to the philosophy and ideals of the national organization; that is the growth of an individual's spirit, mind and body, and a sense of responsibility to each other and to the human community.

The objective of the club is to provide an opportunity for swimmers progressing from other swim programs to obtain professional instruction and experience in the sport of speed swimming. The club endeavors to provide an opportunity for swimmers to achieve a level of performance consistent with the swimmer's goals, subject to the resources available to the club and the competitive and program philosophies of the YMCA.

These latter considerations recognize practical resource limitations, the principles of good sportsmanship, fun and fitness, and most importantly, the need for flexibility in satisfying the developmental needs of our swimmers in light of their other interests including physical, spiritual and intellectual pursuits.

Competitive swimmers will have the opportunity to attend swim meets sponsored by various swim clubs within and, on occasion, outside the province. Swimmers compete in the following age groupings, based on age at the start of a meet: Female-12 and under, 13/14, 15/16, 17 and over. Male-13 and under, 14/15, 16/17, 18 and over. Depending on times achieved by a swimmer in the various events, a swimmer will be classed as an A or AA swimmer. Certain meets are classed as "developmental" and all competitive swimmers may compete. Others may be "invitational" and the swimmer needs to have a specific swim time to qualify to attend.
