Fall/Winter Swimming (Off-site)

The GPFY Swim Team offers competitive swim training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is our goal of to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

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.

2020-2021 Winter Program: Brian and Aaron Points 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.
