Mission and Groups

The Community YMCA Red Bank Swim Team is a competitive swim team which competes in the National YMCA Swimming and Diving and the United States Swimming organizations.  Our swim team consists of approximately 300 swimmers ranging in age from 6 to 18 and in ability from novice to nationally ranked swimmers. We practice at two locations, one at the Red Bank Branch, in Red Bank, NJ, and one at the Camp Zehnder Branch in Wall, NJ.  During the season, the team offers a variety of practice groups from Pre Team to Senior, which includes the National Team training group.  The team is coached by full time and part time professional coaches, who are supported by the Red Bank Swim Team Parent Association.  Our goal is to develop each swimmer to the be the best they can be!

The Aquarockets swim team has produced many outstanding swimmers who’ve competed at the national and international levels, including Olympic bronze medalist Tom Wilkens. The team continues to produce great athletes including numerous teams that have placed in the top 3 in both the YMCA Short Course and Long Course National Championships.

Our Credo:  "This team shall be known for its great enthusiasm, pride and comradeship, tempered by graciousness and respect for others.  Let our team members speak well of each other and of their competitors and always encourage each other.  Let them learn to accept praise and victory with modesty and humility and accept defeat with dignity.  Let our team conduct itself with outstanding behavior that officials, parents and meet sponsors are glad to have the Community YMCA Red Bank swimmers participating."


We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Thank you for joining us. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to ask another member or coach any question you may have.
