Swim Team


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.

Try outs are held Monday/Wednesday/Friday at 5pm. Please email Coach Heath to schedule a tryout.

Novice Group Swimmers must be able to swim one length on their stomach and one length on their back. They must be comfortable in the pool alone, as the coaches do not get in the water. They work on freestyle, particularly rotary breathing, and backstroke.

White Group Swimmers must be able to swim multiple lengths of freestyle and backstroke. They work on all four strokes. We mostly focus on refining stroke mechanics, but also include some endurance training.

Blue Group Swimmers must know all four strokes and be able to swim a 200 IM. They swim for an hour and a half at each practice.
