Speed Demons Swim Team

FULTON YMCA SPEED DEMONS

Speed Demons is a competitive swim team which offers high quality coaching and technique instruction for grades K-12.  We are a co-educational, competitive swim team that participates in junior and senior swimming under the direction of the Fulton YMCA.

Since competitive swimming is both a highly individual and team sport, the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, and individual development are stressed.
Our coaching is planned to teach, train and encourage swimmers to achieve their potential in competitive swimming. Swimmers will learn team building, responsibility and commitment which will prove valuable to them as they grow and develop.
Swimmers will learn how to read the warm up board, pace clock and will be introduced to beginner sets and intervals.

Both Junior and Senior teams will learn to enhance the opportunity for this personal development, a policy of “Everybody Swims” is followed.
