GTBY is a year-round competitive swim team. More than just a swim team, however, GTBY is also focused on the YMCA mission: a community- and family-based commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. GTBY offers high quality coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities, from novice to national competitor, while encouraging a fun and healthy environment for the social, physical and personal growth of each athlete. We build strong kids, and a strong community.


Time Standards

Michigan Time Standards are established by Michigan Swim based on prior athlete performance within the state. Each year these Time Standards are updated, generally in September (except for LC--look in the spring for updates). These standards will assist your athlete in formulating their goals, while competing with athletes at the same level of performance.
(United States Swimming (USA) - (Q1) State, (Q2) JO, (Q3) District)

Each Meet with a Qualifying time or "Cut" will have the time standard listed on the Meet Event Page (or a link to the time standard).
