Swim Birmingham YMCA is a year-round program offering training for beginners through national level competitive swimmers. SBY Vestavia'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. SBY is a member of the Southeastern Swimming Local Swimming Committee. Southeastern Swimming is one of 59 Local Swimming Committees (LSC's) that make up USA Swimming, the governing body for US Olympic Swimming. Southeastern Swimming represents about 7,900 swimmers from 79 clubs located in the States of Alabama, Florida, and Tennessee. For more information visit Southeastern Swimming's website here.
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 six days a week, as well as progressive calisthenics and strength training. 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.

Coach Nick has been coaching swimming in Birmingham for the past 11 years.

Prior to his coaching career, Coach Nick studied Athletic Training at Troy University, where he was a member of the Troy University Track Team and served as a Student Athletic Trainer for the Troy University Football Team. Nick's background in Athletic Training helps him focus on injury prevention as a tool in producing well rounded, long term athletes. Nick develops dynamic workouts for each group, believing that training methods should always reflect the swimmers' and group's current needs. This method goes alongside Coach Nick's long-held view that athletes benefit most from participating in both group and individualized training.

Gold - A 3 year average of 1st place at the Southeastern Championships.
Silver - A 3 year average of 8th place at the Southeastern Championships.
Bronze - A 3 year average of 16th place at the Southeastern Championships.
SEQT - A standard which allows you to swim/participate in the Southeastern Championships.

Red - This is 96% of the SEQT.
White - This is 94% of the SEQT.
This is unique to the Vestavia YMCA and allows a "Stepping Stone" approach when setting goals for swimmers. A PDF will be sent out along with Team Results with swimmers who have achieved new stepping stones. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this.

2018 Short Course Southeasterns
SBY finished the USA Swimming Short Course Season by re-writing the record book in Huntsville. A total of 18 New Team Records were set by Vestavia swimmers over the course of the three day meet! SBY's swimmers didn't let the fact that many were competing as the youngest in their respective age group bother them. They showed consistency all meet with the majority improving their seed in almost every event. Much of the success was fueled by their teammates as those who were not competing or warming up, never missed an opportunity to go behind the blocks or turn end to cheer their friends on! Great TEAM SPIRIT!

Region 3 Championship Recap
SBY made a huge splash finishing as the top team in the city at the Region 3 Championship meet held at the Birmingham CrossPlex this past weekend (2/10 & 2/11)! Even while leaving a large amount of our Southeastern Qualifiers at home or even out of their best events, the Vestavia Branch was able to break an amazing 7 Team Records at the meet (details below). Several of the records broken were owned by swimmers who later continued their career at The University of Alabama, Birmingham Southern, and Notre Dame!
One of the most impressive feats of the weekend, if not the season, came as Victor Song not only smashed his own record in the 100 Freestyle, but also posted the 38th fastest time IN THE NATION for 12 year old boys! Congratulations Victor!
The Vestavia Branch of SBY left the meet with 23 swimmers who have qualified for the Southeastern Championship Meet held in Huntsville February 23rd-25th (24-25 for 10&Unders). This puts our team as having the largest number of qualifiers in the city! Please join me in wishing the TEAM good luck as they compete next weekend as this feat is truly a TEAM effort! This will also be posted to Vestavia YMCA's FaceBook page so please feel free to share in support of our team's hard work!
Psych sheets, timelines, and heat sheets for SE's will be posted as it is made available to me.

Knoxville Prelim/Final Meet
Excellent job this weekend to all who went. So many of our swimmers bettered their seed and swam up into finals when they were not seeded to. We also added 5 brand new SE qualifiers to the team total. They are: Ella Mayfield, Jack Motl, Kate Motl, Emily Rabbideau, and Chris Rubin.
Let me start by letting everyone know that registration is now open HERE and can also be found on our website linked below in my signature. Please note that we have extended the session to 5 months this year to include the month of May before summer hits. Other changes include our "Pre Team Group" which will take the place of Level I and meet 3 times weekly; Monday 5-5:40pm and Tue/Thur 4-4:40pm. We will have 1 instructor in the water and 1 on deck during these practices in order to enhance the swimmer's development. Another Developmental Group for those brand new to swimming, will be added on Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:50-5:30pm in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
Monthly Draft and Pay In Full options are available. If selecting Monthly Draft, please give 30 days notice if there is a month in which your swimmer can not participate. Please email me for any and all questions on group placement.
While membership is not required, we are currently running a promotional for the remainder of January. There is currently no Sign Up Fee as well as no Monthly Dues until Feb 1st. If this is something that interests you as we head into the new year, contact myself or our Membership Director, Clay Coleman at email@example.com for additional info.
We are still in need of USA (and YMCA) officials with our meet coming up in May. Please let me know if this is something that interests you, or if you have any questions on the level of commitment. Here is a link on How To Become A USA Official. Further, if you are currently a USA Official and want to help, or need to fulfill sessions as an apprentice next weekend in Knoxville, please let me know.
We currently operate on a "semester" or session calendar for Swim Birmingham YMCA. The Fall Session technically ended Friday, December 8th and all monthly drafts halted either November 1st or 15th. Since our sport is a cumulative one, we will be offering practices during December and all the way up to the next session start date of January 8th. I have separated the sign up by week hoping to make it easier on those who are traveling, etc. Please review the attached PDF and the TeamUp App for practice days/times. I highly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity so that we can continue the great progress gained over the Fall months. I hope to see everyone tomorrow!
Parent Meeting (Friday, December 15th)
We will be having a mandatory parent meeting Friday, December 15th at 5:15pm in the Group Exercise Room upstairs. On the agenda will be updates from the coaching staff, discussing how the foundations built from this Fall/Winter tie into the Spring/Summer, and our upcoming meet held at the CrossPlex May 5th & 6th that Vestavia is hosting.
