Mission Statement

It is the goal of the Summit Area YMCA swim team to offer age specific training and focus on the long-term, progressive development of our athletes. The foundation of our program is comprised of teaching correct stroke technique at every level, offering a challenging training regimen, and to develop each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. Our coaching staff strives to enable our athletes to achieve their goals and to grow as individuals both in and out of the pool. We are committed to creating and maintaining a safe and inclusive space for all athletes to experience the sport of swimming.

July Tryout Information

Our traditional tryout period is always the last week of July, where we offer two days of tryouts. Prospective swimmers need to only attend one timeslot. The tryouts are run as a one-hour practice evaluation and are for ages 7 to 12*. Swimmers will be evaluated not only on their swimming technique but listening skills and their interaction with other kids and the coaches. 

All 13&Over swimmers must email Head Coach Pat and are by invite only. We had over 160 new swimmers come out for the team this past summer. All roster spots for the upcoming season are quickly filled afterwards.

*Age for the short course YMCA meets is determined by the child’s age as of December 1st 2022.
