22 Swimmers Compete at YMCA Regional Swim Meet
Twenty-two of our hardworking YMCA of Snohomish County Barracudas have qualified for YMCA Northwest Regionals in Boise, ID and will compete March 3-5, 2023 against swimmers from six other states.
Swimmers have worked diligently over the past year to achieve a qualifying time standard in individual and relay events. Swim team coaching focuses on endurance training and stroke techniques, as well as the YMCA values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The comprehensive coaching encourages athletes to achieve their goals in a fun, team-oriented environment.
The Barracudas represent five of the six YMCA of Snohomish County branches. They have practiced together for the past several weeks to get to know each other and bond as an association team.
More meets are scheduled this spring, giving swimmers an opportunity to compete against other local swimmers. Registration for swim team is open year-round for swimmers ages 5-18 who are interested in taking their swim skills to the next level.
