Welcome to the Georgia Mountains YMCA TIGER SHARKS Swim Team!  This program is a recreational Swim Team for everyone ages 6 to 18 years old.  Our coaches are USA sanctioned or lifeguard certified with lifesaving certificates.  The YMCA Tiger Sharks Swim Team stresses safety, stroke, turn & start techniques, sportsmanship, camaraderie, and fun exercise!  Swimmers do not need to be experienced to participate; average swimmers are greatly welcome!  Swimmers only need to know how to swim (at least 15 yards).  (for safety, we cannot accept non-swimmers). Click here to get more information about Swim Lessons at the YMCA)
 
Competitive swimming is a family sport.  Unlike soccer or baseball, ALL parents will be required to perform volunteer duties at swim meets and during the league season.  These duties may include timing, scoring, judging, concessions, ribbons, etc.  Don’t worry, we will show you what to do!
