Randolph YMCA Sharks Swim Team
Interested in joining the Randolph YMCA Sharks Swim Team? The Randolph YMCA swim team is a competitive, year-round program for swimmers ages 5-18. In order to join the RANY Sharks, a tryout is necessary.
The RANY Swim Team is a successful competitive team with a family atmosphere. RANY is the family you choose! Our mission is to provide a comprehensive training program for all ages and encourage our swimmers to achieve their potential. As with all YMCA programs, our objectives are to promote Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.
SWIMMER FOCUSED-The coaching staff chose to coach at RANY because they live the sport and helping swimmers reach their goals. We focus on each swimmer's individual improvements on various skills and not just winning or their final time. Our coaching staff takes the time to meet with each swimmer to get to know them and to create a plan to help them achieve their goals. Swimmers will be taught how to appreciate their success and also deal with their disappointments.
WE ARE A TEAM-Fostering a family environment goes hand in hand with FAST and HAPPY swimmers. We take pride in our family environment and work together to promote this important component of our team.
LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT-Our program allows proper and appropriate development in this sport for future success in the sport. FAST swimming at a young age is FUN, but we will not sacrifice health and future success for the now. We learn and succeed more from the process than instant gratification.
Pre Team Ages 7-12
Monthly Fee/Commitment • 1-3 Days/Week
This program is for swimmers who are interested in improving their swimming skills without the commitment of the Swim Team. This is a non-competitive group. Swimmers will have the option of swimming 1, 2 or 3 days per week. This is a month to month commitment.
Purpose: This program is designed to offer stroke correction, aerobic development, and competitive swimming skills to increase the ability level of the swimmers. Swimmers will be given practices that include warm up, skill practice, training sets, and time to work on skills such as diving, turns, etc. Swimmers will be introduced to racing principles. There are NO swim meets for swimmers in this program.
Swim Fit Ages 7-14
This program is for swimmers looking to improve their swimming skills, looking for continued lessons, or to stay in shape. Swimmers will work on technique of all four strokes, improve their endurance, and fitness. *For families looking for our traditional swim fit program, as we expand our reopening plans, we will reintroduce this program. Please keep an eye on our website for future programming.
Any questions regarding any of our Competitive and Non-Competitive Programs, please contact the Director of Competitive Swimming, Hilary Collins at email@example.com to discuss what we can offer your family!
Based on our tryout results from August 2020, we will be planning to offer pre-team (non competitive) spots to swimmers looking to improve their skills. This program will be more flexible and offered monthly. Information for this program will be available soon.
