Swim Team

The purpose of the Lakeland Hills Family YMCA Swim Team is to use competition as a means of learning the lifelong values of goal setting and discipline for success.

Swimmers will learn to improve their skills as well as learn the value of teamwork and sportsmanship within a competitive atmosphere led by capable coaches. Our coaches exemplify YMCA leaders who strive to build not only character but children who are healthy in bodies, mind and spirit.

The LHY Swim Team competes in the NJ YMCA Swim League and USA Swimming competitions. Tryouts for the winter season are held in the summer. Practice begins in September, with dual-meets beginning in October. The season runs through February, March or April, depending on the championship season-end meet for which a swimmer qualifies.

With a long tradition of winning and sportsmanship, LHY has a coaching staff dedicated to the development of the all-around swimmer. For more information, contact the swim team office at ext. 31 or log on to our website at www.lhyswim.com.

Join us for 3 days/week for 3 weeks for one hour of instruction from the staff. We will coach starts, turns and strokes while using videotaping and fun! This is geared for 10/under swimmers that end their season with Silvers, Bronze, or 8/under Championships (JO’s or March Madness participants are not permitted to sign-up as they will still be practicing). Open only to LHY 2016 – 2017 Team Members
