Lasers Swim Team

Lasers Swim Team

Lasers Swimming is a competitive swim team hosted by the Northwest CT YMCA. We swim at both the Torrington and Winsted Y locations. Our team is made up of Boys and Girls ages 6-18 years old and range in ability from beginners to National level swimmers.

We are registered with both YMCA Swimming and USA Swimming giving opportunities to all levels of swimmers.

Over the past several years, we have produced multiple team records, league champions, New England Champions, Eastern Zone qualifiers, YMCA National qualifiers and have sent several swimmers on to continue swimming in college.

Our program is technique driven in the lower groups with more endurance training introduced as athletes advance from one level to the next.

Please note: to join Lasers, you must have or become a Youth or Teen Facility Member.
