Registration Info

The Oshkosh YMCA (OSHY) Dolphin Swim Team has groups to meet the needs of the novice swimmer through the national champion swimmer. All swimmers work on technical improvement, physical conditioning and social development. Most swimmers take part in meets (competitions), but not all. Swim meets for newer swimmers are in Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, and Appleton. There are many types of swimmers on the team from fitness to social to highly competitive. All are welcome. The swimmers can join the team throughout the year. To join the team swimmers must be able to swim one length of the pool (25 yards) with the front crawl. Most swimmers, age 5-12, begin with the Dolphin group which meets 3 times per week. Swimmers are encouraged to be there every day, but there are no requirements, most attend twice a week. Almost all new swimmers also participate in other activities.
