Swim Team

Building excellence in swimming through an emphasis on teamwork and character development by providing a safe, healthy, and positive environment for athletes.

The Frederick County YMCA Tidal Force swim team participates in both a summer and a winter league. We compete as a team in scored, dual meets as well as optional invitational meets throughout both seasons. Our team is a competitive swimming program that promotes youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Participants build character values through personal improvement, training, goal-setting, teamwork and competition. In between the winter and summer seasons, the Team offers a competitive stroke clinic to keep swimmers active. In addition we offer a USA swimming option for our swimmers.

FCY Tidal Force Swim Team is a well-respected and growing program that is proud of its swimming and coaching achievements, including:

  • Pro Series Qualifiers
  • USA Junior National Qualifiers
  • YMCA Nationals A, B and C Finalists (Short Course and Long Course)
  • YMCA Top 16
  • USA Swimming Top 16
  • NCAA Division I Scholarship recipients
  • USA Swimming Sectionals participants & AAAA achievers

**Please note: All summer team members will be given priority sign-ups for the upcoming winter team.
