The Attleboro Y has a long-standing history of swimmers who have achieved personal and national excellence as part of the Y’s competitive swim program. Through the Y’s Tsunami Swim Team and pre-competitive Waves team, young swimmers strive to meet personal and team goals, learn the value of hard work, and to enjoy spirited competition.
Tsunami Swim Team
The Tsunami Swim Team is a competitive program for swimmers aged five to 18 years old. The YMCA’s swim team program offers a variety of options for swimmers of all skill levels—from beginners looking to improve their strokes to dedicated swimmers with national qualifying aspirations. The team competes in the Eastern Massachusetts YMCA swim league. The team is based at the Y’s Downtown Branch. For more information, contact Coach Tom McLaughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-409-0737.
