Swimming Groups

Swimmers are divided into four levels depending upon their age and ability….as determined by coaches.
Both YMCA and USA swimming competitions are available.
Swimmers in this group are at the novice level. They must be able to swim one of the competitive strokes 25 yards. Focus is on learning all four strokes by teaching technique in a fun environment.
Swimmers in this group can already swim 25 yards of most competitive strokes. Skill development and proper technique of the four competitive strokes are the top priorities. The emphasis is on stroke and skill refinement.
Swimmers in this group have shown proficiency in all four strokes. They are capable of following workouts and instructions. Proper technique and skill refinement are emphasized while more practices and endurance training are offered. Attendance is expected.
Swimmers must be able to compete in all four strokes and 200 IM. These swimmers are committed to intense training and senior-level competition. Regular attendance at practices is required of individuals in this group.


The Sunbury Dolphins make use of two separate swimming facilities. They are Susquehanna University and the Sunbury YMCA swimming pools. With two facilities at our disposal there are more options for available swim times and fewer swimmers in each lane.

The Season

The season begins in early September and extends until early April for those going to nationals. Fees vary depending upon the swimming level of the student-athlete based on their practice group placement.
Swimmers must compete in at least three YMCA meets during the season to be eligible for additional competition. At meets we measure progress, experience competition and strive for individual and team accomplishments.
Our competitions include dual meets, invitational and championship meets. The goal is to be a team that supports all swimmers through different tracks that swimmers and families choose to compete at based on their inclination, desire and athletic ability.
