Welcome to the home of the OCY Tiger Sharks Swim Team.

We are a coach directed, parent supported YMCA program.

OCY offers a variety of competitive programs that are designed to accommodate children of all age groups and skill levels. At each level, the goals and objectives are specific and directed toward meeting the needs of the swimmer. The long-term goal of total excellence is always in mind. As each child is different, he/she will progress at his/her own rate. The coaching staff recognizes this fact by making team assignments based on a swimmer's physical, mental, and emotional level of development. Contact us using the "Contact Us" button on this webpage.

Our philosophy is "BELIEVE".

To have confidence in the truth.

To trust in yourself and your team.

Only if one BELIEVES in something, can one act purposefully.

The Ocean County YMCA offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Ocean County YMCA to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

 These are the top 5 areas the OCY coaching staff uses to assess group moves.

1. Training Ability

2. Commitment Level

3. Swim Meet Participation

4. Group Availability

5. Competitive Level
