Team Overview

The CYAC Swim Team is a competitive swim program dedicated to providing all swimmers from 6-19 years old in the greater Charlottesville/Albemarle area a positive and healthy swimming experience. We offer both YMCA and USA swimming opportunities.  The YMCA focus on the core values of Caring, Honesty, Responsibility and Respect, guarantees our swimmers not only develop as individuals, but also learn the team aspect of swimming.

CYAC is a year-round program, offering short course training and meets during the fall and winter and long course training and meets during the spring and summer.  Proper technique is the focus of each training group.  Our age-appropriate training helps each swimmer to reach their individual goals.  We welcome our collegiate athletes back to the CYAC program during school holidays and in the summer.

We have a knowledgeable and experienced coaching staff able to coach swimmers ranging from those just entering competitive swimming for the first time to the experienced competitor training for national level meets.  We have two training locations, Brooks YMCA in Charlottesville, and Crozet Park Pool in Crozet.  The YMCA offers financial assistance by confidential application to those who cannot afford the full cost of program fees and membership.

Our swimmers learn that thinking like champions and training like champions leads to championship performances.
