The RAYS Swim Team, founded in 1988, is a widely respected year – round swim team for children ages 5 and up. We are a competitive program that is designed to meet the needs of swimmers of all levels. We are a “Y” team and a “USA Swimming ” team which means we compete in local, regional, and national YMCA meets and in meets organized by United States Swimming. Both organizations offer swimming competitions for swimmers from the beginning level up through national competition. When a young person becomes a member of the RAYS Swim Team, he / she learns the values of sportsmanship and team work along with the YMCA core values of honesty, respect, caring, and responsibility.
