GYST Swim Team

The Greensburg YMCA pool is home to the Greensburg YMCA Stingrays. Greensburg Y Swim Team (GYST) is members of the WPYSL and members of the United States Swimming Association.  Swimmers will develop all of the competitive strokes while working on your endurance skills. They will have an understanding of belonging to a team, travel to different Y’s and make new friends. It’s a GREAT, FUN way to experience competitive swimming.  Teams compete in the Y League swimming dual meets throughout the season.  Those swimmers who meet qualifying times have the opportunity to travel to the YMCA District, State, and Nationals meets.  All stingray swimmers must be members of the Greensburg Y.  Our team is led by a passionate elite coaching staff along with enthusiastic volunteers. All Stingray swimmers must be members of the Greensburg YMCA in good standing and pay dues to compete.

 

We offer practices at two locations including McKeesport Area High School and the Greensburg YMCA.  Swim team participants can swim at either location or both locations depending on their location.  All meets are on Saturdays and are at the Greensburg YMCA and once per year; invitational is offered at the McKeesport location.  Practices are Monday through Friday starting at 5:30 pm at McKeesport and 6 pm at the Greensburg Y.  Practice concludes around 7 pm at McKeesport and 8 pm at the Y.
