West Morris Area YMCA Sharks Swim Team
Interested in joining the West Morris Area YMCA Sharks Swim Team? Our swim team is a competitive, year-round program for swimmers ages 6-18. In order to join the WMY Sharks, a tryout is required. Tryouts are usually held in April and August of each year.
The WMY Swim Team is a successful competitive team with a family atmosphere. WMY is the family you choose! Our mission is to provide a comprehensive training program for all ages and encourage our swimmers to achieve their potential. As with all YMCA programs, our objectives are to promote Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.
SWIMMER FOCUSED-The coaching staff chose to coach at WMY because they love the sport and helping swimmers reach their goals. We focus on each swimmer's individual improvements on various skills and not just winning or their final time. Our coaching staff takes the time to meet with each swimmer to get to know them and to create a plan to help them achieve their goals. Swimmers will be taught how to appreciate their success and also deal with their disappointments.
LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT-Our program allows proper and appropriate development in this sport for future success in the sport. FAST swimming at a young age is FUN, but we will not sacrifice health and future success for the now. We learn and succeed more from the process than instant gratification.
WE ARE A TEAM. Fostering a family environment goes hand in hand with fast swimmers and good humans. We take pride in our family environment and work together to promote this important component of our team.
