COME SWIM WITH THE BEST
The Y is dedicated to the development and success of competitive aquatics in Wayne County as it related to two of our main areas of focus: Youth Development and Healthy Living. The staff believes that aquatics can provide a clean, safe, and healthy outlet of energy. More than learning the competitive strokes and conditioning, swimmers will also learn the value of hard work, dedication, self-discipline, goal-setting, personal accountability, and team loyalty. We offer three competitive options for swimmers of all ages.
The Goldsboro Y Sharks (GOLD) are the premier swim team in Wayne County and Eastern North Carolina. We provide all youth the opportunity to participate in a year round competitive sports program. The team shares in the Y's mission to build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Please visit GOLD Swimming for more information.
The Goldsboro Y Masters program is designed to develop/train recreational and competitive swimmers 18 years and older. The team is made up of the Eastern Carolina community and spans to all ages and ability levels. We offer regularly scheduled practices with a USA Swimming certified coach on deck. Workouts are focused on the improvement of technique, performance and avoiding injury. We are part of United States Masters Swimming, a national organization with more than 50,000 members which promotes lifelong fitness through swimming. Please visit Masters Swimming for more information.
Swim Academy is a pre-competitive swim team designed for children ages 6-12 who are beginning to develop interest in the swim team. Taught by the Sharks swimmers and coaching staff, this program teaches solid stroke mechanics and race skills in a fun and non-stressful environment. Swimmers will be taught the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly in a progressive manner, with each week building on the one before. Please visit Swim Academy for more information.
