Children in a YMCA Swimming Pool

Build Skills, Friendships, and Confidence on a Developmental Swim Team

The Developmental Swim Team provides an entry-level swim team experience!

This track gives swimmers the chance to learn stroke development and age-appropriate conditioning without a focus on competition or time commitment. Developmental swim teams are ideal for kids and teens who have just completed the YMCA swim lesson program. Swim meets and other events are offered, and participation is optional, so you can choose the experience best for you!

Safety Procedures

The safety of all our participants is our top priority. To ensure the health and safety of all swimmers and family members, the following protocols will be in place for swim teams. Requirements are based on local city, county, and state orders.

  • We’ll have a limited number of swimmers per lane based off of YMCA of the USA guidelines and USA Swimming guidelines for conducting practices in a safe and healthy manner.
  • Swim coaches will ensure that any shared surfaces or areas are sanitized between practices and other aquatic activities.
