The Caimans Swim Team is a YMCA and USA swim program that is lead by a professional coaching staff under the direction of the New Canaan YMCA. The program is structured to promote personal character development through constant challenges and competitive opportunities. Our dynamic and energetic coaching staff bring over 100 years of combined experience to the program and is excited to lead and teach our young athletes. We are committed to the YMCA’s four core values; Respect, Honesty, Caring, and Responsibility, as well as promoting athletic success at all levels. Please visit our team website to learn more about our staff.
Our program thrives on volunteerism, so we expect all of our swim team families to get involved. Our goal remains to make this program a family oriented program. In order to meet this objective, the Parents Association is requiring that all families earn a minimum number of volunteer credits by helping out at swim team events and functions throughout the year. Information on these requirements can be found on our team website.
This year we will continue with the online swim meet sign up procedure. This allows us to enter meets in a timely manner assuring that our swimmers are provided with the opportunities to realize their growth, as well as creating opportunities for swimmers to take more ownership of their competitive experiences in an extremely convenient manner.
We are excited and optimistic about the future of this program and are extremely thrilled to have your child and your family involved. You will find in this packet the needed information required to register your child for the upcoming swim season. More in-depth information is available on our team website as well. There you will be able to learn more about the Caimans practice philosophy, structure and coaching coverage.
