Welcome to our 2016-2017 season.
We welcome back our head coach Tina Cecala

USA National Team Breast Stroke Clinic at the Greater Morristown YMCA with Nic Fink and Melanie Margolis, Tuesday, November 24th 2015

Why our swim team? Because we believe in an environment where we will bring out the best in your swimmer. Athletes, especially children learn and perform when encouraged, and shown how to excel and be the strongest competitor they can be. Our coaches have strong backgrounds in technique and conditioning.

When you join a swim team, you are joining something more than just a team. Parents and swimmers alike are making life long friends. In addition to developing very competitive swimmers we make it fun and treat you like family.

Season runs September - March. Those qualifying for elite meets may swim until March or April
