From the Sharks swim team:
The Wyckoff YMCA Sharks is a year-round, highly selective, competitive swim team program for girls and boys aged 6-18.
The Sharks are one of the top teams in the state of New Jersey and are currently ranked 45th in the nation.
Our team mission is “Creating Champions through the Pursuit of Excellence.” The program is technique-based with an emphasis on quality over quantity.
If your child is looking for a place where you can be an important part of a team, learn the techniques to swim fast and develop core values, the Wyckoff Y is the place for you!
