Want to swim competitively in a fun and positive environment? Join the McGaw YMCA Swim team, or MYST! MYST is focused on developing swimmers ages 5 to 18. Swim team participants improve individual skills while swimming competitively and have opportunities to compete both at the local and national levels. Coaches focus on proper technique while swimmers improve their endurance, learn teamwork, make friends and, most importantly, have fun! The guiding philosophy of YMCA swimming is “Everyone swims, everyone wins!” This means we value participation as much as performance.
