Aquajets – Swim Team
Norfolk Family YMCA Aquajet Swim Team will introduce your swimmer to the exciting and interesting sport of competitive swimming. Swimmers will be given the opportunity to be members of a team that regularly competes in meets across the state of Nebraska as well as South Dakota and Iowa. Swimmers will learn the value of being a member of a team, sportsmanship, self-discipline, healthy habits, confidence, cooperation and knowledge of the sport of competitive swimming all under the direction and supervision of Christian leadership. Norfolk Family YMCA Aquajet Swim Team is a USA Swimming affiliated team so your teammates will be Olympians such as Michael Phelps, Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte, Katie Ledecky, Matt Grevers and Natalie Conghlin.
TO BE ELIGIBLE TO JOIN THE SWIM TEAM, SWIMMERS MUST:
1. Be a current member of the Norfolk Family YMCA and continue membership throughout the season.
2. Be at least 5 years old and pass the following required skills:
a. Be able to swim two (2) lengths (50 yds.) of the YMCA swimming pool.
b. Back kick one (1) length (25 yds.) of the YMCA swimming pool.

d. Be willing to follow Coaches directions.
The first week of every month is your opportunity to “try-out” Norfolk Family YMCA Aquajet Swim Team with no obligation to join. Your “try-out” experience will be much more productive if Aquajet Swim Team Coaches are prepared to work with a prospective new swimmer. So, please give prior notice to the Norfolk Family YMCA Aquatics Director (402-371-9770) if you plan to attend “try-out” week. At the end of the “try-out” week, you will be asked to make a formal application to join the Norfolk Family Aquajet Swim Team providing your swimmer/s have passed the skills assessment.
Annual membership runs from September through the end of July the next year.
