Franklin Flyers Winter Swim Team

The Flyers is a competitive swim team that competes with other YMCA's. The prerequisite swimming ability is to be able to swim 1 length of the pool in any manner. We'll teach you the rest! Swimmers range in age from 5-19. Practice starts in September and ends in February, March, or April depending how far each swimmer advances in competition.Winter swim team membners are required to be members of the Franklin YMCA. Meets begin the end of October or first part of November and continue through February. These meets are rewarding and fun for both swimmers and their families. Although competitive swimming is a demanding sport, it is also very rewarding. It builds strong athletes and develops a sense of teamwork and sportsmanship. Many of our swimmers have gone to Districts, States, and Nationals (held in Ft. Lauderdale, FL). High achieving swimmers may receive college scholarships. It is a sport in which you can participate the rest of your life. We understand that children participating in competitive swimming may have other interests. Our philosophy does not discourage swimmers from participating in sports and other activities during the season. WE WANT YOU! Become part of this competitive sport. At the beginning level, stroke development and learning to be a part of a team is emphasized. At more advanced levels, competitiveness, teamwork, race strategies, and fine tuning of the 4 competitive strokes are skills that are stressed.  EVERYONE swims-EVERYONE wins.
