YMCA Whalers Swim Team
The purpose of our competitive swim program is to provide every swimmer with an opportunity to strive for excellence in a competitive swimming environment. While setting a record, getting a personal best time, qualifying for a championship meet and winning are common goals, we hope that our swimmers learn more. Personal goal setting, self-motivation, self-confidence, responsibility, improving and maintaining health & fitness, while building lasting friendships are but a few of the goals the YMCA will have for swim team.
Swimming is both an individual and team sport. A swimmer’s individual conduct has an impact not only on themselves, but on the other members of their team as well as the YMCA’s reputation.
All swim team members must be a member of the Woonsocket YMCA, must be ages 6-18 and still enrolled in school. 2022-2023 swim season will begin September 12th for all new swimmers and returning swimmers (competed in last year’s swim team or spring swim team) will begin September 14th. The season will run through mid-March pending championship dates (TBD).
