Although we are not a USA team, USA swimming's website provides a wealth of information for parents and swimmers. I would highly recommend that parents visit USA Swimming Parent Information for some informative articles.
Pool safety is an important factor in successful practice and competition. The Y lifeguards will enforce pool safety rules for all pool patrons including swim team members. Coaches will assist in enforcing rules for swim team members. Please review pool rules with your children, and sign the Swimmer and Parent Contract (see the Documents page to download a copy).
Interested in volunteering? Swim team is different than most other YMCA sports where most parents support their child from the sidelines. Swim meets require parent participation and there is a job for everyone.
We have found that the kids get more enthused for swimming when they get to compete. Swim meets do not happen without us. We have several meets on the calendar this year. Check the events page as meets are added.
If you are interested in volunteering at swim meets, reach out to Coach Burr, Darren or Michael. If you would like to be involved with planning and coordinating swim team activities please join the parent council.
