Competitive Swim Team

Competitive swim teams are available for children as young as five. The swim team program helps swimmers develop healthy, lifelong skills and habits as both individuals and team members. YMCA swim coaches work with swimmers and families to promote achievement, facilitate positive relationships and create a sense of belonging, all with the goal of helping individuals realize their full potential in and out of the water. Swimmers have competitive opportunities at the local, regional and national levels of both the YMCA and USA Swimming. You must be a YMCA of Greater Cincinnati member to participate in our competitive swim program.

Masters Swim

Ages 19 & Older | Masters Swim

Masters swimming provides a fun and supportive group environment, for adults age 19 and older, in which individuals set their own goals – competitive, fitness or otherwise. It is beneficial for anyone who is able to swim laps and is interested in improving stroke technique, fitness, or who just wants to share their love of swimming with others. Competitions are offered but not expected or required.

Workout sessions typically last an hour and interested swimmers are welcome to try a few sessions before deciding whether to join.
