BARRACUDA
SWIM TEAM

The YMCA of the Chippewa Valley Swim Team is a competitive program that focuses on the development of swimmers of all ages and abilities. Our trained coaches work to improve each swimmer’s skill level, technique, and endurance to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our program embraces the YMCA's core values and promotes progression at an individual level. Practices 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 Team competes in the Central Wisconsin Swim Conference, Wisconsin YMCA teams, and participate in USA Swimming meets as well. Workouts include endurance, speed, and drill techniques, with a healthy dose of teamwork and sportsmanship.
