Combining the environment of a great training facility, experienced coaching staff, supportive parents and hard working swimmers, our Gleason Family YMCA Riptides Swim Team is living their motto everyday: EVERYONE SWIMS, EVERYONE WINS!
Over the course of the season, swimmers will have ample opportunity to increase their mental, physical and emotional abilities, that will carry over into their daily lives out of the swimming pool. As a member of this cohesive group, swimmers will develop social skills that will last a lifetime. Team members will also experience successes that in turn will foster increased self-esteem.
This is a co-ed, competitive and seasonal swim team running from 9/28/2020 – 3/7/2021. Practices are geared to build swimmer’s endurances, improve technique while developing a child’s social and physical potential. Swimmer must have good command of Freestyle (front crawl) and Backstroke with rudimentary or better Breaststroke and Butterfly. Attendance is required for a minimum of 3 practices per week to qualify for competitive events.
