Swim Team Trial Week Coming Up

The YMCA of Darke County staff and swim team coaches are looking forward to the upcoming 2017-2018 DCY Winter Short Course season.

Swim team is open to all Darke County Y members, ages 6 and older, who can exhibit competency in 50 yards of freestyle and backstroke.

Trial Week is an opportunity for interested swimmers and their parents to attend a practice session and “get their feet wet.” Meet the coaches, other parents, and swimmers, and experience the swim team environment.

Coaches will be available to evaluate the swimmers’ abilities and will also be conducting stroke clinics focusing on breast stroke, butterfly, and backstroke.

Returning swimmers should also plan to attend Trial Week, especially if they have aspirations to be promoted to a new practice level.

The Trial Week opportunity begins October 2. Swimmers may come to as many practice sessions as they wish during Trial Week.

Monday, Wednesday and Thursday practice will be at the Greenville Branch from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.

Tuesday practice will be at the Versailles Branch from 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM.

An informational meeting for parents will be Thursday, October 5 at 6:00pm at the Greenville Branch.

The DCY Sharks offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the DCY Sharks to offer ability level-specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. The three training levels include Bronze, Silver and Gold.
