For Ages 6 to 17
At the YMCA we are all about developing youth to be their best. Here at the YMCA of Austin we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for swimmers for all ages through a program that fits the needs of each youth. We integrate the YMCA’s core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility to serve as the foundation of our team. At the YMCA we believe that through our competitive USA Club Swimming program we are able to serve the community and offer a place where each swimmer can belong.
Competitive swimming builds character. Instills discipline, provides leadership, enhances self-esteem, promotes physical fitness and teaches teamwork, all of which can be used throughout a lifetime.
Club Swimming at the Y
Our club is a YMCA and now a member of USA Swimming offering high quality professional coaching, technique instruction, and competitions for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve their swimming skills and to achieve success at his or her level of ability, from the novice swimmer all the way up to the national swimmer.
What our Club Swim team offers is access and ability for swimmers to take their swimming to the next level. As a club program, USA swimmers will belong to a world of swimming that can take them as high as they want. All of our staff, as certified USA Swimming Coaches, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend swimming will be quality time.
Swim Practices and Meets
Practice schedules vary based on the level of the swimmer. Each practice is geared towards the skills needed to develop a well rounded swimmer. While practices work to break down skills of each competitive stroke, they also work on building good swimming etiquette, strength, and endurance as well as having an opportunity to have fun with family and friends.
Swimmers can compete in a multitude of swim meets against other USA teams in the area and beyond. As part of USA swimming each swimmer will be given the opportunity to swim at meets that can be monthly or even more often. Meets will not only be against other YMCAs but nonYMCA club programs. Performance is also tracked which can give swimmers an opportunity to take their swimming to whatever level they wish. Who knows we may be training our next Olympic Gold Medalist swimmer here at the YMCA and that may be your swimmer one day!
