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.

Children must be between the ages of 5-18 and able to continuously swim 25 yards on the front and 25 yards on the back in order to try out for the FCY Tidal Force Swim Team. Click below and complete form to be added to our mailing list for upcoming tryout information.
