Blue Dolphins Swim Team

About YMCA Swim Team

Every kid has swimming abilities – there’s a little Michael Phelps or Simone Manuel in each of them.  Help yours find their swimming potential through the County Y’s Blue Dolphins Swim Team!  Swimmers of all ages and abilities participate in our Swim Teams.  Led by caring coaches, we emphasize personal improvement through stroke technique and training, a strong work ethic and team work through competitive swimming.   Swimmers compete locally with the opportunity to advance to the district, state and national level.

Our team is open to swimmers age 6 (as of June 1, 2023) through 21, and of any level or ability, provided they can pass a swim safety test (more details under “New Swimmers” below). The 2023 summer season will tentatively start Monday, June 12 at PennWest Edinboro’s McComb Fieldhouse.

Practices will be held between 5:30 pm – 6:45 pm Monday through Thursday.

For additional information, check out the “Forms and Information” tab at the bottom of this page, email Robin Leopold at [email protected], stop by the front desk, or check our Facebook page: County Y Blue Dolphins Facebook.

At the YMCA, the safety of children is our top priority. All volunteers must have current Act 33 and 34 clearances, as well as a completed volunteer application, which includes a Code of Conduct. As all Swim Team families will be asked to volunteer at swim meets, we require that at least one person per family become a certified volunteer for this purpose. Parents who have current Act 33 and Act 34 clearances may provide copies for their volunteer files. If the parent has no current clearances, the YMCA will obtain them at no cost to the applicant. An application form is included below (under “Forms and Information”) is a link to an electronic application. We thank you for joining us in keeping our kids as safe as possible!


Welcome to our team! New swimmers will need to take a swim safety test. These tests will be conducted at the first practice on Monday, June 12. Swimmers must also be or become a member of the YMCA, per YUSA mandate.


Please fill out the relevant forms listed below. Forms can be turned in at the County Y’s Membership Desk, emailed to Zach Miller  [email protected] or brought to the first day of practice.

Swimmers can register online at  YMCA Swim Team, by phone (814.734.5700) or in person at the County Y’s front desk.
