2023-2024 Swim Season

Come be a part of a great aquatics experience! The Sea Turtle Swim Team is a developmental swim program run by trained coaches to improve swimmers’ competitive skills and endurance through progression rather than intense competition. The Y swim team promotes healthy lifestyles while embracing the four core values of respect, responsibility, honesty and caring.

The tryouts for this season have concluded.

Practices will be held at the Somerville YMCA pool on Mondays (3:30-5:30pm) and at the Ginny Smithers pool Tuesdays and Thursdays (occasional Wednesdays).  Your swimmer will be assigned a group from either 5:00-6:00pm or 6:00-7:00pm. 

Swim Meets

Since it is a competitive team, we do have swim meets.  Yearly we have about 4 dual meets (about 2-3 hours long) they are held at either at the Ginny Smithers Pool or the opposing team’s pools. They are on the weekends, and attendance is mandatory for at least 2 meets. We try to get the schedule out during the first month of practice to plan accordingly. 

There are 2 additional championship meets that swimmers can qualify by their times for. 


The price for the 2023-2024 season will be $550. In addition to the fee, you will need to purchase a swimsuit (cost is between $35-$65 depending on the decided upon suit). The YMCA has a long-standing tradition of not denying anyone committed to swimming from doing so. We have various payment plans, sliding-scale fees, and limited financial grants to accomplish this goal. Financial consideration should not be the deciding factor on whether your child participates.
