The Oneida YMCA Dolphins Swim Team is a competitive swim team serving youth ages 19 and under. We are a collective group of swimmers, parents, and coaches who have found swimming to be an excellent venue for teaching important life skills. These skills and values will help our swimmers become positive and productive members of the community.
We encourage personal and team goal setting, self-discipline, team spirit, and sportsmanship in a fun and challenging team environment. The ultimate goal of our program is to have our athletes reach their potential as swimmers. It is our hope that swimmers will build self-esteem, personal relationships, develop moral character, and become better leaders and supporters.
It is the struggle to be our best that causes us to learn the lessons that make swimming a worthwhile endeavor.
“Swimming is supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it.
It is the hard that makes it great.”
