2023 1st Place South Carolina Small Team Coastal YMCA League Champions!


Ride the wave with us - join the Summerville Family YMCA Swim Team! The Tidalwaves are a year-round swim team serving swimmers ages 4-18 who live in Summerville, North Charleston, Ladson, Goose Creek, Hanahan, Charleston and other areas of Dorchester, Berkley and Colleton County, SC. We participates in SC USA swimming and the Carolina YMCA Swim League. Our year-round season runs from August 22-mid March. Competitive swimming gives swimmers the opportunity to enhance their technical skill and strengthen their aerobic fitness in a training regime that stresses discipline and constant personal improvement. Competitions give swimmers the experience to put those strengths and skills to use in races, across a wide range of events and distances, and to experiment with different strategies and situational pressures. Personal performance in these situations, and the lessons learned, are more important than the medals won. Stress management, team dynamics, work ethic and dedication are all life skills that competitive swimmers will take with them beyond the pool. We travel to other areas/states to attend YMCA and USA meets; some meets are three days long. Not ready to commit to a full season? You may register for just our conditioning swim team.
