YMCA PIRATES SWIM TEAM
The Family YMCA of Black Hawk County Pirates work to improve and develop the swimming technique of all participants in an atmosphere of fun. We want to encourage our swimmers to have as much fun as possible in the water, while challenging themselves to become more competitive swimmers.
To educate our swimmers about the dedication required to become an athlete, we encourage good nutrition, healthy exercise, and proper recovery.
We challenge our swimmers to become great team leaders in and out of the water by incorporating the core values of the YMCA – Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.
