GYST Swim Team

The Greensburg YMCA pool is home to the Greensburg YMCA Stingrays. Greensburg Y Swim Team (GYST) is a member of the WPYSL and a member of the United States Swimming Association.  Swimmers develop all of the competitive strokes while working on their endurance skills. They will gain 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.  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 in our Main Pool at the Greensburg YMCA, 101 South Maple Avenue, Greensburg.  All meets are on Saturdays (Fall) or during the week (Summer) and are at the Greensburg YMCA or at away Y’s within our region.  Practice schedule will be communicated by the coaches.
