The Massillon YMCA Gators will focus on individual development. Swimmers' development is not measured by the overall finishing pace, but by improvement of times, attitude, behavior, goal achievement, sportsmanship and creating life-long leaders within the community. In joining the YMCA Gators you are embarking on a journey of self-improvement, enjoyment, success and development through powerful skills and abilities needed for accomplishing any goal in life.

SWIM TEAM MISSION

To serve the youth of Stark County and surrounding areas, providing diversity of swimming instruction for children in a
positive atmosphere. Our goals are to cultivate confidence and self-motivation by instilling good sportsmanship, self-discipline, and respect for others. We will accomplish this by providing opportunities for every member to reach his/her potential at each stage of their development. This gives youth of all ages the opportunity to improve swimming skills while building friendships and healthy habits that last a lifetime.
