Swim Birmingham YMCA saw great success at our 2019 team-hosted Swim Into Summer Long Course Meet held at the Birmingham CrossPlex May 4th & 5th. From Huntsville to Mobile, 11 teams totaling 250 athletes were in attendance. Swim Birmingham YMCA parent volunteers contributed a large part of this success, as over 30 plus parents helped in various roles both Saturday and Sunday. It was truly a TEAM effort - Thank you, parents! 

We are incredibly proud of our SBY swimmers!  SBY participation in the meet jumped from 78 team members in 2018 to 108 this year!  Many achieved numerous best times, team records, and Southeastern Championship qualifying times.  This shows that positive energy from each branch creates not only team participation, but fast swimming as well!  

At the conclusion of the meet on Saturday, Swim Birmingham’s own Cathy Diaz signed her National Letter of Intent to compete as a student-athlete representing Birmingham Southern this coming fall.  Many of her teammates were in attendance and able to watch this special ceremony take place.

Great work Cathy & GO SBY!!
