Summer Swim Team Conditioning

We still have some time before the 2023 Summer Swim season starts, but no one wants to lose all the skill and endurance they earned with Winter swim. To solve that we are offering Summer Swim Conditioning.

The program will run Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30pm to 6:30pm here at the Bedford YMCA. Each participant is $80 and we do offer sibling discounts.

Registration is now open for swim team members. If you are interested you can gain more information by emailing SJ at [email protected]

Summer Swim Team

We are so excited that Summer Swim Team is back for the 2023 season. We don’t aim to be necessarily the fastest but we always aim to be the best. And this year we have new partnerships! For the 2023 summer season, Bedford YMCA is proud to partner with Crosswhite Athletic Club to offer a second location for the Barracudas to train.

Swim Team will be $25/55 per month for the season running May – July if you draft monthly. We have sibling discounts of $10 off and if you are a high school swim team member you will get an additional discount of $10 just let us know!

Swimmers must be active members to be on the team, and we offer different options for that. A Youth membership is $21 per month when drafted monthly. There are invoice options for 3, 6, and 12 months but additional fees will apply. There will be no Joiner’s Fee if you are joining the swim team but we do have a 30-day notice to cancel policy that will apply as well as a membership maintenance fee.

Focus for Swim Team

We will start the season off with physical conditioning to get the kids into swimming shape before progressing into more technique-based work. The bulk of the season will be spent training with emphasis on technique in all 4 strokes as well as building the conditioning level as high as we are able to. The season will conclude with a taper to ensure all athletes are at peak performance for the end of the season championship meet. While practices are not mandatory, we strongly encourage kids to attend as much as they are able so that they can get the most out of training and perform to their full potential at meets.

The Bedford YMCA swim team is a great way to enjoy competitive swimming in a recreational environment. All swim meets during the winter season will be on weekends starting in November and running through the first weekend in March. Summer meets take place in June and July and are on Monday evenings, with our championships taking place on Saturday mornings at the end of the season.
