Lake Anna YMCA Pool Sharks Swim Team

The Lake Anna YMCA Pool Sharks is a year-round swimming experience that offers young swimmers an opportunity to develop their swimming skills, build self-confidence, and create lasting friendships.  Competing against local YMCA teams, our swimmers are encouraged to try their best and focus on self-improvement of skills. There are three opportunities to join the Pool Sharks, Spring Clinics, Summer Team, and Fall Team.  Swimmers can join any of the programs and are encouraged to participate in all three!


Our fall swim team program is open to swimmers of all abilities. Lasting from September until February, our fall team is a great value for competitive swimmers. Throughout the season our swimmers compete in seven dual meets and at least one championship meet.  

There are also several optional invitational meets for swimmers to refine their skills. Our trained coaches help each swimmer achieve their goals and focus on developing well-rounded swimmers. 

Each swimmer must be a member of the Lake Anna YMCA and able to swim one length of each freestyle and backstroke. Level placements are held in late September.
