Behavior:
It is the coach’s responsibility to create an environment in which all swimmers can have fun while also striving to reach his or her full athletic potential. Coaches will strive to teach participants to live and train according to the YMCA core values of Caring, Respect, Honesty and Responsibility. Participants are expected to listen carefully during practice when the coach gives directions and explains the swim team skill and drill practice sets.

The Norm Waitt Sr. YMCA takes measures in order to cater to athletes with varying degrees of commitment levels.
