The Columbus YMCA Swim Club (CYSC) is our competitive swim team with practices and monthly meets. Swimmers who participate must be able to swim 25 yards (one length) of the pool using both the freestyle and backstroke. Swimmers must know and understand the basic concepts of swimming – this is NOT swimming lessons! Emphasis will be placed upon stroke instruction, endurance, sportsmanship, and having fun. Swim Team has two sessions (see below). Swimmers must register for the first session to be able to swim in the second session. Swim team participants are required to be YMCA members – Nebraska YMCA Swim League policy. Swimmers must be registered prior to the first meet in October to swim. All new swimmers will swim with a coach the first week of practice to make sure they qualify for the swim team. If for any reason the child is unable to successfully complete the swim, the family will be refunded in full at the YMCA for the cost of the session.
