YMCA Sailfish Swim Team

“Everybody Swims, Everybody Wins”

The YMCA Sailfish is a USA Swimming sanctioned program designed for swimmers ages 6 and up from beginner through national levels. The Sailfish swim team provides children and families with opportunities to experience competitive swimming in a fun, challenging and positive environment with a highly experienced and accomplished coaching staff. The YMCA coaching staff stresses individual self-improvement as each swimmer’s primary goal.

Sailfish swimming uses a “progressive” age group program designed to develop each child physically, mentally and emotionally. Training in stroke techniques, speed and conditioning/endurance is customized to ability and age to help achieve this goal while also learning the importance of hard work, teamwork and sportsmanship. 


Group placement is based more on the ability than age of the swimmers. Group placement is decided solely by the coach and may change based on the needs of the swimmer. 

All swimmers are required to be members of the YMCA of Northern Colorado to participate. 

Families have the option to pay in full or enroll in a monthly payment plan at checkout. 

Practices are held at the Longmont Y.
