YMCA and USA Swimming?

We pay and register for both the YMCA and USA (USA Swimming-- logo on side of website, click for details). This allows for our swim team to participate in YMCA Swim Meets across the state and country. At the end of each Short Course Swim Season, there is the YMCA Championship swim meet. This meet includes the states YMCA Clubs competing against one another. Swimmers must swim in at least 3 YMCA Meets during the season to be able to swim in this event. YMCA also has a very competitive swim meet, the YMCA National Swim Meet. These time standards typically involve select senior swimmers.

USA Swimming allows us to participate in swim meets across Nebraska and the country. The level of competition is usually more competitive at this level. Under the EVENTS Tab on our website, our different swim meets are designated as a USA Swimming or YMCA Event.
