The Shasta Family YMCA Sharks Swim Team is a year-round, competitive swim team that allows swimmers to continue improving and strengthening their swimming skills after progressing through our year-round learn-to-swim program.
This program will pick up where Stage 5 leaves off. Participants must know all the basic strokes and be able to swim 25 yards across the pool. Led by Head Coach Steve Lazaraton, this program serves swimmers school-age through high school, and is designed with four swim groups to better serve all the ages.
Stroke School: Students who have completed Swim Stage 4.
Mako Sharks: Transitional group for Elementary School athletes (swim assessment required).
Tiger Sharks: Elementary School athletes who have completed Swim Stages 5 & 6.
Hammerheads: Middle School athletes who have completed Swim Stages 5 & 6.
Senior Group: High School athletes who have completed Swim Stages 5 & 6.
Practices are Monday - Friday, with a morning or afternoon practice schedule. Hammerheads and Senior Group include Saturday morning practices. Participants must be Y Facility Members.
