The Countryside YMCA Torpedo Swim Team serves the area’s youth through a competitive swim program dedicated to Christian ideals and excellence. The swim team is a family-oriented organization committed to a well-constructed and well-executed program in which athletes can excel, both in and out of the water. The swim team facilitates a positive, supportive environment for swimmers who compete in the sport of swimming. Through our Junior (10 & under), Age Group (11-14) and Senior (15-18) swimming programs, we provide year-round training for everyone - from the novice competitor to the elite levels of competitive swimming. We encourage each swimmer to set aggressive goals for themselves. For more information, contact Head Coach Jason Roberts or view the team website.
The Precompetitive Torpedoes Team is a bridge for individuals between swim lessons and our competitive program. It uses elements of both programs. Participants will gain a basic understanding of swim teams while working on stroke mechanics, racing starts, turns, pace clock reading, and many other swim team activities. Prerequisites: The swimmer must be 6 years of age, swim at or beyond Stage 3 swim lessons, or be able to swim 25 yards freestyle with rotary breathing, 25 yards backstroke, and have a working knowledge of breaststroke, and butterfly. Tryouts are required. For more information, contact Karla Toye.
