2023 marks 100 years of YMCA National Swimming and Diving Championship Meets!



Help us celebrate 100 years of Swimming and Diving history

Alumni Video and Photo Reflections


Alumni – athletes, coaches and volunteers - are encouraged to contribute to a video or photo reflection on the meet and what it has meant.  These will be part of a Virtual Museum of YMCA National Swimming and Diving history.

Videos (2 minutes maximum) and photos should present the following:

  • Athletes – What is your favorite memory from YMCA Nationals? How has YMCA Swimming and/or Diving been transformational in your life?

  • Volunteers – What roles have you served at the meet? Why did you/do you do it? What is your favorite memory from YMCA Nationals?

Upload your videos and photos to Dropbox at this link and then email [email protected] with your contact information and any comments or stories.

Submission deadline is January 31.
Individual videos will be compiled into one larger video from which clips will be shown at this year’s event and which will be posted online in the Virtual Museum.
Spread the word to get as many Alumni Reflections as possible!
