AS A TEAM

SPRING/SUMMER SWIM TEAM
GREATER SCRANTON YMCA


 

The YMCA Swim Team is based on the YMCA Principles of competitive swimming and character values. We believe that everybody swims and everybody wins. Our Coaching staff boasts some of the most experienced coaches in the area, and is dedicated to emphasizing values through individual development in swimming skills, sportsmanship, leadership and team spirit.
