COMPETITIVE SWIMMING

Y swim teams are competitive programs focused on individual and team improvement in a positive environment. Our swim teams compete in the Chesapeake & Potomac Swimming League. The season runs from September to March and swimmers participate in local, regional and in some cases, national swim meets. Team practice is held at Y centers.

Our swimmers, coaches and families follow the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, and although winning is not our main focus, members of our swim teams have enjoyed a great deal of success, including:

  • US Olympic Trial Qualifiers
  • US Open Qualifiers
  • Nationals Finalists
  • USA Swimming Top 16
  • Maryland Swimming Top 5
  • NCAA Division I Scholarship recipients

JOIN A SWIM TEAM

You must be part of a Y family membership to participate on a Y swim team. Teams are grouped by age ranging from 5 – 18. Most Y swim teams maintain a wait list. When openings are available, coaches pull from the waitlist to evaluate swimmers and/or hold swim team evaluations during the summer months.

To find out if a participating Y center is holding evaluations or for more information, please use the contact information below.

MASTERS SWIM TEAMS

A masters swim team is available at some Y centers for adult swimmers age 18 and older. This is a competitive swim team for individuals who are interested in improving their stroke technique and development. Structured practices are led by a swim coach and teams may compete locally among other master swim groups.
