THE TEAM
The Beginner training group is for younger swimmers just getting started in competitive swimming. Swimmers will be introduced to stroke technique and competitive skills (starts and turns). Swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool backstroke and freestyle with no equipment or assistance.

The Intermediate/Advanced training group will continue to develop their stroke technique and competitive skills with an Increased emphasis on endurance training. Swimmers in this group have made a commitment to the sport and will be expected to train at a higher level.

To set up a placement test please contact Head Coach, Shelley Lechnir by phone at 641-752-8658 or by emailing, shelley.lechnir@ymca-ywca.org. Once swimmers have been tested and placed they are entitled to a one-week free trial.

The Blue Wave swim team is for individuals willing to work hard and compete in scheduled swim meets.  Emphasis of the program is skill development, sportsmanship and the enjoyment of swim competition.  Younger participants should be able to swim multiple lengths of the pool (unassisted using no floatation device) without touching the bottom.  Advanced swimmers should possess the ability to skillfully swim strokes in ranges of 2-4,000 yards per practice.  Competitive swimming is not a “learn to swim” program.

Prerequisite: Swim 25 yards each front crawl and back crawl without assistance or equipment
