Tidal Waves Program Features

The York YMCA offers two different developmental and competitive swimming program pathways: York YMCA Swimming a nationally focused USA and YMCA Swimming Program and York YMCA Tidal Waves Swim Team.

For the very young, those new to swimming or those returning to swimming after an extended break the Tidal Waves Swim Team offers an easy way back into the sport.  This offering features reduced fees, shorter practice times and local competition.
