BSY Swim Team

BSY Swim Team

Ages: 5 – 18 years (participation depends on ability level)

A collaborative effort between the Bridgeport and Stratford Ys, our team offers a stimulating, enjoyable program that stresses stroke technique, endurance, sportsmanship, goal-setting and leadership.  We strive to do all this in an environment that embraces the YMCA’s philosophy of building spirit, mind and body for all.  We believe these qualities serve our swimmers well in the pool, but also in the classroom and in life.

Practices take place weeknights at the Stratford Y, 3045 Main Street, Stratford.  For more information contact Rob Urban at

Piloxing Into Shape

PILOXING® cardio fusion incorporates cutting edge research and fitness techniques to burn maximum calories, build lean muscles, and increase stamina.

Add to that exhilarating dance moves and you have a muscle-toning, fat-burning workout that will make you feel physically and mentally empowered!
