Dolphin Swim Team
This program is designed to introduce the sport of competitive swimming as well as to challenge those who have already participated in competitive swimming. The focus of this program is to build on fundamentals, endurance, and fitness and to challenge the swimmer against their current abilities with an emphasis on setting personal goals and achieving those goals. Completing Swim Strokes 4 (Formerly Starfish/Minnow levels) are encouraged to participate, but continued swim lessons through Swim Strokes 5-6 (Formerly Flying Fish) are encouraged. Swim team participants receive 50% off of the member rate for group swim lessons.
The fall program runs from the beginning of September through the end of October each year. The winter program runs from the beginning of November through the end of March, and the Summer Program runs from the end of April through the end of July. The cost is $50 per month which includes the team fee and the YMCA fee. Team swimmers must be members of the YMCA.
Pre-Team is for strong swimmers who are not quite ready to be on the Dolphin swim team. Pre-Team is coached by our Aquatic Director and assistant swim team coach Casey. Swimmers will learn practice habits, stroke mechanics, drills, starts, flip turns and so much more! Practice is held Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30. Casey will provide a practice schedule to the swimmers on the first day. Cost is $50 for YMCA members and $100 for community members.
