CYAA Mini Sharks Session Two

The Carlisle Family YMCA has a competitive swimming program (CYAA) for youth up to age 18. The program includes development and training for all levels from the novice swimmer to the national elite. No tryouts are held, but swimmers must be able to swim one length of the pool (25 yards). The team participates in the YMCA Swim Coaches' Association of Pennsylvania (YSCAP) League and competes in several dual meets as well as optional USA and other YMCA invitational meets. The swim team is divided into three groups: Mini Sharks, Competitive Age Group and High School Age Group. The season runs from October to February. A Y membership (youth, teen or family) is required for all competitive swimmers.


This program is specifically for children ages 5-8 years old and 9-year-olds who are new to competitive swimming who are interested in competing. The season runs from January 2 - February 22, 2019 and practices are offered 3 days/week. Session Two Mini Sharks are encouraged to compete in the team's dual meets held on specified Saturdays or Sundays and the league championship meet at the end of February. Participants in this group must possess a Y membership (youth or family) that is effective by the first day of practice.
