A competitive Youth Swim program for Y members ages 5-21 building strength and endurance while refining technique. Swimmers are grouped according to ability and age from beginner to advanced. The team competes against other area Y’s as well as in District/State meets. Children are empowered by the confidence they develop as they work to swim a mile and beyond while enjoying the water environment so many seem born for.

Aqua Force will offer different competitive swim clinics based on the ability of the swimmer. All are designed to improve stroke technique and increase endurance. These clinics will assist in the development of your technique and endurance. They are also a great way for new and returning swimmers to preview our summer and fall swim team practices.
