Swim Team Trial Week to begin Oct. 1

YMCA Swim Team is the perfect way to start competitive swimming at any age! Compete against YMCAs from across the area and become a better swimmer in a safe and fun environment.

The YMCA of Darke County’s Swim Team program promotes healthy living, youth development and social responsibility through this fun competitive swim league!  Swim Team is a whole-family sport: the swimmers develop endurance, strength, and flexibility, along with team building and sportsmanship skills while learning all four competitive strokes with their friends.  Parent participation is required to run successful swim meets!

The Y’s competitive swim program is open to all YMCA of Darke County youth members ages 6 and up. Swimmers need to have completed Stage 4, stroke introduction, or have equivalent skills.

Members who are interested in swim team can come to the Y and swim during trial week and experience the swim team environment. It is also an opportunity to meet the coaches and other team members, and have their swimming evaluated.
