GYST Swim Team

The Greensburg YMCA pool is home to the 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 lead 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.
