Moody Family YMCA in the Park Cities Waves Swim Team

Introduce your child to one of the most competitive and challenging sports around. Competitive swimming builds cardiovascular health, flexibility, muscle tone, and more. Goal setting, confidence, and self-discipline are benefits.  Swim meets are held regularly all year in the Dallas area.  All swimmers must be assessed by the coach prior to registration in order to be placed in the correct practice group. 

All new swimmers must participate in a tryout. Ongoing tryouts for swim team will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 5pm. 

The try out consists of swimming a 25 (one length of the pool) free style and a 25 backstroke. This is the minimum requirement to join the swim team. The tryout will determine which group your child will be placed in. Practice schedule is based on which group you are in.
