FOBY Swim Team

FOBY Swim Team2018-06-27T14:13:58+00:00
Our team is a year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor. At every level we aim to build a love of the sport. Technique and drills will be stressed in practice to improve all strokes.

The coaches will set the tone for a safe, challenging and motivating environment by continually learning and striving for improvement. The same demands that we make of our swimmers: attendance, attention to detail, accountability and a positive attitude are standards to which we also hold ourselves.

The values of the YMCA: honesty, caring, respect and responsibility will be instilled upon individuals via our commitment to sport and fitness. Through dedication to youth development our goal is to not only have all swimmers achieve success and reach their goals in the pool, but also to become individuals who contribute positively to the community.

All swimmers will be required to complete a tryout registration form at the time of arrival.
