Swim Team


Swim Team Philosophy:

It is our philosophy that any swimmer who practices regularly, works hard, and tries to improve deserves as many opportunities as possible to swim at meets (some swimmers may swim more than others). The positive support of coaches, parents and teammates will help all of our swimmers to reach their goals of individual and team improvement. We must not measure success by how someone performs against teammates and opponents, but by how the swimmer performs against the clock and his or her own improvement. We encourage every swimmer to cheer for fellow teammates at meets and at practice.

2019 Summer Program: Michelle Arnottt and Sarah Hall have accepted the position of co-coaches and we are excited to have them on board. Their hands-on, team-oriented philosophy embodies the mission of the Y and we are excited to have them.

We would like to welcome each family and swimmer to the Greater Peoria Family YMCA summer swim team!  The coaching staff is ready for another great season here at the pool.  All participants in the summer swim team must be members of the Greater Peoria Family YMCA.
