FALL SWIM TEAM 2020
The Marion Family YMCA Dolphin Swim Team is for kids ages 5 to 18 who enjoy the spirit of competition, as well as the camaraderie of being on a team. We center our program around the values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Our athletes are of all ability levels, working to improve their skills, build self confidence, and develop their potential as a swimmer and individual.
Our swim team has a rich history of helping athletes realize their potential as young persons and as swimmers. In recent years, athletes have met personal bests, set Marion Family YMCA records, set high school team records, and competed at the Zone and National level.
All team members must be a member of the Marion Family YMCA.
