2018 Swim Team

2018 LMYA Swim Team - Registration opens Feb 1

May 1 - August 12, 2018


Swimmers of all abilities are welcome on the LMYA Swim team.  For swimmer safety, however, all participants must be able to swim 25 yards across the pool.  During age group practices, swimmers will focus on age-appropriate stroke technique, drills and conditioning.  Each swimmer on the team has the opportunity to participate in all regular season meets and is encouraged to try different events. While we do not have a minimum practice participation requirement for swimmers - as with any sport, you get out of it what you put into it.  Swimmers who come regularly to practice will find they progress in skill and endurance more steadily than swimmers who come less often. Preseason evening practices begin in May and run Monday through Thursday until local schools are dismissed for the summer.  Summer daytime practices run Monday through Friday once school is dismissed with some evening practices available for swimmers who cannot make it to daytime practices.  In the spirit of recreational swimming, the LMYA Swim team does not advocate double day practices.

 

Since our team operates purely on “Parent Power”, parent participation is a required component of swim team registration and membership.  Click here for more information on the parent commitment. 

There is a mandatory parent meeting on Monday, April 30, 2018 for the parents of all swim team members.
