Manta Ray Mission

The Manta Ray Swim team mission is to create a unique, high quality swim club that offers all of its members the opportunity to set goals and the means to achieve them. We understand that winning is much more than one’s place in the finish of a race, and we are committed to helping children grow in spirit, mind and body.

The Goochland YMCA Manta Ray swim team coaching staff is committed to providing an enjoyable swimming experience for swimmers of all ages and abilities, while also providing a challenging and positive teaching and training environment in which swimmers can develop a sense of self-esteem and pride through individual and team achievement. The Manta Rays emphasize the four pillars of the YMCA: Caring- Honesty-Respect-Responsibility. We are additionally committed to excellence in performance as well as continued growth in the sport of swimming.
