Willow Grove YMCA Swim Team is an age group swim team offering training and practice groups for swimmers ages 6-18 and all ability levels. It is the goal of the Willow Grove Swim Team to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities, while promoting the YMCA core values of honesty, respect, caring and responsibility.

We offer both winter and summer competitive swim seasons. Our winter season begins in early October and runs through early spring for our advanced swimmers. Our summer season begins in late May and runs through the end of July.

We also offer both a fall stroke and turn clinic, beginning in early September, and a spring stroke and turn clinic, that begins in mid April, for those swimmers looking to get prepared for the upcoming season.

New swimmers wishing to join must be evaluated by a coach and meet the pre-requisites prior to registering for either our summer or winter team. Pre-requisites for swimmers 8 & under: must be able to swim a lap of freestyle with rotary breathing, a lap of backstroke and perform a basic dive. Pre-requisites for swimmers 9 - 12: must be able to swim 2 laps freestyle with rotary breathing, 2 laps backstroke, flip turn, backstroke turn and perform a basic dive . Swimmers ages 11-12 must also be able to swim 2 laps breast-stroke and 2 laps butterfly. Pre-requisite for swimmers ages 13 & over: must be able to swim 100yd freestyle, 100yd backstroke, 100yd breast-stroke, 100 yd butterfly, flip turn, backstroke turn, open turns and perform a dive. New swimmer evaluation dates will be posted in advance of each season. New swimmers must attend an evaluation prior to registering.

Returning swimmers do not need to be evaluated. They can be registered in their current swim group.

All swimmers on the team are expected to attend the regularly scheduled practices for their specific practice group - however, they must commit to a minimum of 2 practices per week in order to be on the team. All swimmers are expected to attend the dual meets during the season. Invitationals are optional but strongly recommended.

At the beginning of each season, 2 parent meetings are scheduled to inform parents on the upcoming season. Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to attend ONE of these meetings.
