West Essex YMCA Swim Team

Welcome to the West Essex YMCA Swim Team, a professionally run program with a long-standing tradition of athletic success and personal achievement.  The objectives of the program are to develop young athletes to maximize their swimming ability, to develop self-confidence, and to build respect for others.  It is designed to motivate and challenge swimmers to reach individual goals while still enjoying the benefits of a team sport.  We compete in invitational meets, dual meets, and championship meets sanctioned by USA Swimming and YMCA Swimming.
