We will be hosting and co-coaching the Fall Program at YWST this fall. This is an excellent opportunity to improve your stroke, with a focus on technique, and continue swimming in winter. The program runs 4 days a week (M, T, Th, F) from September 12 – November 18 (10 weeks).
We are offering 2 groups. Group 1 (4:15pm-5pm) is for all 8&Unders and also 9-10’s that are still learning breast, fly, and IM. Group 2 (5pm-6pm) is for all 11&Ups and also 9-10’s that can legally swim breast, fly, and IM.
Please note that all swimmers must have at least one full summer season of swimming experience. This is not a learn-to-swim program, but rather a program to continue the fitness and development of your summer recreational swimmer.
Please register on the Valley Vista website. This program is limited to 60 participants and we expect to sell out. Please register soon.
We are rapidly approaching our exciting auction… Come join us for an evening of enjoyment, friendship and some good food. We also use this time to raise money for our club and team, and we have some fantastic donated items for your pleasure.

A huge thanks to Tricia McCann and Angie Elgazzar for organizing our polar bear plunge on Dec 31, 2015! The water was cold (there was ice on the baby pool), and the hot chocolate was hot, and the swimmers were all a little crazy!
Thanks everyone for showing your seahorse pride!!!
