About Us

The Southern Prairie YMCA Swim Team is a competitive, but fun environment that will help swimmers develop their technique, endurance and speed. Through dedication and hard work we seek to encourage and motivate each swimmer to take their skills to the next level. In addition to quality instruction, Stingray coaches strive to instill teamwork, character values, and a sense of belonging in each of our young athletes.
