5/4/2015 - YMCA Swimming Website -

Exciting Update Coming to YMCA Swimming Website

Mark your calendar for June 1, 2015!

The National YMCA Swimming and Diving website will convert to the TeamUnify platform on that day.

After this conversion you will be able to find all of the information and links that you access now on the current site on the new website. In addition, your team does not have to be a TeamUnify customer in order to access the new features on the national website.

There are currently 13 regional YMCA websites using the TeamUnify platform. You may access yours today by using the links on the national site. These sites will remain and will integrate directly with the new national site when it goes live on June 1.

In preparation for the conversion on June 1, the team and coach registration functions and the meet sanction application function on the current national site will be disabled from May 18 - June 1. Please have your team and coach registrations and your meet sanction applications complete prior to May 18.

More information to come!

If you have questions, contact Meredith Griffin, YMCA Swimming and Diving Program Coordinator, at mgriffin@cincinnatiymca.org.

1/3/2014 - YMCA History - Did you know that the YMCA Short Course National Championship started in 1923?  Did you know that Swimmers swam the 220 Yard freestyle, the 150 Yard Backstroke and the 300 Yard Medley Relay (no fly)?  Only 85 swimmers participated in the 1924 championship.  In 1930 there were 150 athletes participating in 9 events.   Through the efforts of Paul Atkinson, our YMCA National Historian, you can learn how the National championships progressed over the years - the events, number of swimmers, attending teams, while also remembering the coaches, meet personnel and swimmers/divers from the past

7/24/2013 - Principles of Competitive Swimming and Diving is now online - Y-USA has launched an E-learning version of Principles of Competitive Swimming and Diving course, AQ412B. The cost will be $20 for the E-learning course. We will be allowing the live Principles of Competitive Swimming and Diving to be run in a classroom until 12/31/2013 in order that you may continue to train your staff. The Trainer level for this course was retired as of May 1st, 2013.
