ABOUT THE YMCA SWIM TEAM

DIVE INTO THE WORLD OF LIFE-SAVING SPORTS

Swimming at a competitive level, no matter the age, is a fun and low-impact way to exercise with peers. Our program is broken up into two tracks: Y Swim League, and Swim Club. Swimmers new to the competitive environment of the sport typically begin in the Y Swim League. As youth and teen swimmers perfect their techniques, they may progress to a more challenging level.
ABOUT THE Y SWIM LEAGUE

ABOUT ADULT SWIMMING

MASTERS SWIM TEAM

The word “Masters” has nothing to do with your skill level or current ability in the pool; just your age. Masters Swimming is open to adults 18 and older who want to improve their fitness through swimming or who want to prepare to compete in a fun and social environment. We welcome all types of recreational swimmers, triathletes, competitive swimmers, and open-water swimmers to enjoy the camaraderie of our Masters Swim Team.

Each workout is coached by a certified YMCA of South Florida Swim Coach who will provide tips, feedback, and a friendly face to welcome you to our YMCA of South Florida Swim Family! 

OVERVIEW

Masters Swim coaches lead workouts and help swim team members improve technique and endurance. Most team members do choose to enjoy competitions and coaches help swimmers train for those competitions. We do hold a United States Masters Swimming Club Membership for members interested but it is not required.

REQUIREMENTS

- Ages 18+
- $84 for members and $99 for non-members
- 50-75 minutes per practice (schedules vary by location)
- Must be able to swim 25 yards of Front Crawl with rotary breathing
