The Champaign Family YMCA Winter Swim Team is entering its sixth season. The swim team is an opportunity for children to learn discipline, goal setting and self-confidence, while making friends and seeing themselves get faster and stronger. The Flying Fish Swim Team is open to anyone ages 5-18 able to swim the length of the pool unassisted. Swimmers are divided into groups based on age and skill level.
Aside from the traditional pre- and post-season options for Urbana High School swimmers, there are opportunities for swimmers from other schools during the regular high school season. The Y provides coaches, a meet schedule, and the swim team experience. The Y has swimmers representing Graham, Mechanicsburg and London and would like to include swimmers from West Liberty-Salem, Triad and beyond. They can compete for their high school, even if it doesn’t have a swim team, and potentially earn a varsity letter.
