Tiger Sharks Swim Team                                                            

The Tiger Sharks Swim Team is a year-round YMCA competitive swim team that provides a safe, fun, and positive atmosphere for youth and young adults ages 6-21 to learn and perfect competitive swimming skills at our Southeast Y.  

Tiger Shark swimmers have opportunities to develop not only swimming skills but also life skills through a program that cultivates team spirit and engagement. Activities are well-rounded with in-water practices for all swim groups. The three practice groups are tailored to meet each individual swimmer’s needs as each group focuses on the stages of a swimmer’s progression. Coaches use the latest stroke and drill techniques to build proper technique and solid foundations in endurance and speed for all four strokes while incorporating fun into every practice. Coaches also provide continuous stroke, turn, and start evaluation and adjustment to prepare swimmers for competition.  

Our coaching staff is passionate about youth development and has helped swimmers accomplish their goals, should they be as simple as swimming in their first meet, achieving a Zones time cut, or winning their event at the Y State Championship. Regular team bonding events are held to cultivate and encompass our values as not only a team but also a family. 

Tiger Sharks must hold a YMCA Membership to participate in the program. Tiger Sharks have four practices per week and one opportunity to compete in a swim meet each month. Team members pay a monthly draft of $80 for 4 days per week or $40 for 2 days per week. Monthly swim team fees are charged on the 15th of each month and may be paused or canceled with at least one week’s notice to the first of the month. Charges are nonrefundable once drafted.
