The Hunterdon County YMCA Stingrays is a year-round competitive swim team offering high-quality, professional, coaching and technique instruction for ages 6 to 18 years. Our team competes in both YMCA and USA Swim meets. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability from the novice swimmer and beyond while instilling the YMCA core values.
All of our coaches, as members of the American Swimming Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive trainings and certification programs for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.
