Swim Birmingham YMCA is a year-round program offering training for beginners through national level competitive swimmers. SBY’s certified coaches will dramatically improve your child’s swimming ability while maintaining a focus on the YMCA’s core character values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. SBY competes in both USA Swimming meets, as well as YMCA competition.
Swimmers are organized by age and are grouped within those divisions by ability. There will be lanes for each age group with varying levels of practice difficulty. SBY offers practice days from two to 4 days a week. Practices are Monday thru Saturday after school; times will vary depending on group placement. The beginner to the most experienced swimmer will be challenged while perfecting their technique and building endurance, all while having fun!
We are a competitive swim team. We offer groups specifically designed for competitive swimmers who are seeking to swim at a National and State Level. Participation in our Senior groups will require more of your child's time and dedication. These swimmers will be required to sign a "Code of Conduct" contract to be held accountable for how they act and represent SBY. Additionally, these swimmers will be expected to maintain a certain GPA at school and obtain volunteer hours around the city.
January 10th- May 10th
Our program is open to swimmers ages 4 years to 18 years of age. The only requirement to be on our team is the swimmer must be able to swim one full length of the pool unassisted.
