GCY Swim Team

Since 1969, the YMCA of Greensboro has been the proud home of the GCY Swim Team. We offer a comprehensive swimming program for the Greensboro area. GCY is founded on the belief that a child’s involvement in competitive swimming offers a unique opportunity and an invaluable experience in his or her life; one that will help shape athletes as both competitors and individuals. Whether you are just getting started or you strive to compete at the national level, you will meet new friends, have fun, and swim fast!

Programs include:
Age Group Swim Team (all levels, ages 5-18)
Mako Swim League (for seasonal and entry level competition, ages 5-18)
Masters Swim Team (all levels, ages 19&Up)

GCY Swim Team Volunteering

This is a great way to help kids and do a single day or weekend volunteer project.  When we host a home swim meet (at the GAC) we need lots of volunteers to come out and help.  We will train you so no experience needed!
