SWIMMING WITH HORSE POWER!
The Seahorses are a YMCA sanctioned swim team that focuses on providing children with a consistent opportunity to develop and refine their swim endurance and stroke technique. Instruction is provided to meet each individual swimmer’s needs within a safe, motivating, and challenging environment. Allowing your child to develop their competitive skills and instill a lifelong interest in swimming.
At the YMCA we practice a holistic approach to sports, with an emphasis on positive physical, mental, and spiritual development. We believe that there is too much emphasis on winning at all costs and on special recognition for sporting ability.
To be ready for a competitive team, the swimmer must be able to complete 25 yards each of Freestyle and Backstroke, without stopping. They will also need to display a general knowledge of Breaststroke and Butterfly. Tryout dates will be announced before the start of our Fall/Winter Season. If you should choose to begin on our less competitive Summer team, our coaches will evaluate swimmers as needed.
