Swim Team

The Carlisle Family YMCA offers a competitive swimming program for youth ages 5-18 that competes in both YMCA and USA Swimming. The program includes development and training for all levels from the novice swimmer who can complete one length of the pool unassisted to the national elite. No tryouts are held. We encourage sportsmanship, teach a strong work ethic and make the sport enjoyable for swimmers and their families.

The team is divided into 3 teams: Green, White and Gold. See below for more details on each team.

PLEASE NOTE: All swim team members must have a Y Membership (youth, teen or family) that is effective by the first day of practice through the last day of practice.
