MADY MANTAS Recreational Swim Team

New name, same team structure!

The MADY Mantas swim team offers an exciting opportunity for all levels to experience competitive swimming.  Swimmers are grouped according to ability and age to best suit their skills and social needs while helping them achieve maximum performance.  Swim meet participation is encouraged, but not required.  The swim team has two seasons - fall/winter and spring/summer - welcoming swimmers ages 5 to 18 years old.  YMCAs are widely recognized as America's leading resource in aquatics.  In YMCA programs, children and adults learn not only how to swim, but also about leadership, safety and rescue skills, and water activities that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.  In conjunction with our recreaional teamm we offer more opportunities for competitve swimming with USA Swimming Club Membership.  Individual USA application forms are available at the Hopkins County Family YMCA.  You do not have to purchase a USA card to swim with the recreational team.  For more information, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
