About our Team
The Auglaize Mercer YMCA Swim Team is an age-group team consisting of swimmers aged 6 to 18. We are run by the Auglaize Mercer Family YMCA, and we train at both the North branch in Celina and South branch in New Bremen. We compete primarily in the Southwest Ohio YMCA Swim League and attend meets mainly in the southwest Ohio area. We compete year-round, with our fall/winter season running from September to March/April and our summer season from May to July/August.
As a YMCA program, our goals are to promote strong kids, strong families and a strong community through a competitive swim team experience. We firmly believe in youth development through the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We believe these values can be demonstrated and taught through our program. We strive to provide our swimmers and community with opportunities to improve swimming skills, provide a safe and fun environment, and help our members achieve success both in the pool and in their lives.
