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.

September 5-November 9 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, Dylan, (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.
