GROWING STRONGER

AS A TEAM

Competitive Swim Team

Our Mission

 

The Stamford Y Aquatic Club provides a USA swimming program that meets the needs of swimmers from entry level to college.  We stress hard work and dedication in and outside the pool successful swimmers need to master essential life skills such as:  time management, dedication, commitment and goal setting.  SYAC promotes youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

 


 

Team Philosophy

SYAC offers an individualized program with a main focus on stroke development and works with each athlete to reach his or her personal goals. We consider the athlete’s current ability, level of commitment, short term and long terms goals to put together a plan that will make each of them enthusiastic, confident and successful both in and out of the water. SYAC encourages young athletes to explore other after school activities and will create a plan around these other activities to keep them progressing in a positive direction and be highly successful in the water.

 

Swim Teams

SYAC current has 3 group levels and has an at most 1 to 10 coach to swimmer ratio. The coaching staff is very hands on and works from both on the deck and in the water to provide the highest level of instruction to all our athletes. During the registration period the coaching staff will evaluate the athletes and decide which program fits the needs best.
