Parent/Team Info

Dale Turner Family YMCA Swim Team


The Dale Turner Family YMCA swim team provides a quality swim program for children between the ages of 6 and 21.  It encourages personal growth through self-discipline, teamwork, and sportsmanship.  Participants have the option to further challenge themselves with competitive swimming experience with the PSSA league and swim against other Y’s from the Greater Puget Sound area.  The Orcas are an all year round swim team.  We have two swim seasons: A PSSA season that runs September to Mid June and a summer season that runs Mid June until the end of August.



Registration is on-going as long as there is room in the program.  Please contact Nolan Welfringer to arrange a try-out.  Try-outs are required before joining the Orca Swim Team.  Swim Team levels are based on ability NOT by age.  A tryout will help assess whether swim team is appropriate and which level your swimmer will best fit in with.  If your swimmer is not ready for swim team we will suggest which swim lesson program would be the best option to get your swimmer ready for swim team.  All swimmers must have a Youth/Individual or Family membership with the Dale Turner Family YMCA or any YMCA in the Seattle Association in order to participate on the ORCAs Swim Team,
