Y – Farm Swim Team

The Y/Farm Summer Swim team participates in the Chapel Hill Summer Swim League. The Farm, a UNC Faculty Staff Recreation Association and the Y are community organizations that believe in encouraging children to swim as a lifelong healthful activity. Our staff is dedicated to creating an environment where swimmers learn the value of striving to be his or her best.  We want our swimmers to learn about swimming this summer, but most importantly we want them to leave feeling confident, accomplished and experienced! The Y’s core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility will be integrated into everything that we do!

At the Y, we believe the ability to swim is a critical life skill for everyone. In swim lessons, we use a variety of fun methods to help kids overcome fears, build confidence in the water and develop skills that last a lifetime. Qualified instructors meet swimmers at their own level and celebrate all successes. By educating and partnering with swimmers, we’re determined to prevent drowning in our community.
