Illinois Swimming

Welcome to the Illinois Valley Y.M.C.A. Dolphin Swim Team!

The ILVY Dolphin Swim Team, located in the north central part of Illinois, is sponsored by the Illinois Valley YMCA, 300 Walnut Drive, in Peru. Swim practice and home swim meets are held at the Illinois Valley YMCA in Peru in our 25 yard 8 lane pool. Current swimmers on the team reside in LaSalle, Peru, Oglesby, Spring Valley, Mendota, Princeton, Hennepin, and other Illinois Valley communities. The team swims dual meets and invitationals with various other swim teams in the northern Illinois area, including Rockford, Streator, Kewanee, Ottawa, Dixon, Crystal Lake(Sage YMCA), DeKalb(Kishwaukee), and Belvidere. We send swimmers to the Junior Districts, Districts, State and Regional Championships with a goal of making it to the National YMCA Championships!

True to the YMCA principles of a healthy spirit, mind and body, we are dedicated to the building of team spirit, involvement of the family in every aspect of the experience, and to the training and instruction of swimmers from ages 4-21 in the area of competitive swimming.
