YMCA of Greater Dayton Swim Teams are competitive programs that focus on the development of all ages and abilities.

Our trained coaches work to improve swimmers' skill level, endurance and to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our program embraces the YMCA core values and promotes progression at an individual level. Individual teams are organized by ability levels and are designed to help team members improve and refine the four competitive strokes, starts and turns, and finishes. Our Swim Teams compete in the Southwest Ohio YMCA Swim League, against other Y’s and in USA swim meets as well.

Workouts include endurance, speed and drill techniques, with a healthy dose of teamwork and sportsmanship.
