Swim Team

The Carlisle Family YMCA offers a competitive swimming program for youth ages 5-18. The program includes development and training for all levels from the novice swimmer who can complete one length of the pool unassisted to the national elite. No tryouts are held. We encourage sportsmanship, teach a strong work ethic and make the sport enjoyable for swimmers and their families.

NEW THIS YEAR: The team will be divided into 4 teams: Green, White, Silver and Gold. See below for more details on each team. Also, as of September 1, 2020, we are a registered USA Swimming Team, which is also why our acronym has changed from CYAA to CARY.

The team participates in the YMCA Swim Coaches’ Association of Pennsylvania (YSCAP) League and competes in several dual meets as well as optional USA and other YMCA invitational meets. A Y membership (youth, teen or family) is required for all swimmers.

PLEASE NOTE: Practice times may shift slightly throughout the season depending on registration numbers and any capacity restrictions as a result of our COVID-19 health and safety plan.

Thank you to Daily Express, Inc. for sponsoring the CARY Sharks!
