The Westside Silver Fins, as a USA Swimming team, is a non-profit organization offering competitive swim programs for the novice through national-caliber athlete.  YMCA Westside Silver Fins has demonstrated consistent success since its inception in local, regional, national, and international competitions.

Through our vision of “Developing Champions in Life Through Excellence in Swimming”, the YMCA Westside Silver Fins subscribe to a philosophy of teaching and training that provides for maximum long-term performances for its swimmers both in and out of the pool.

Leadership and accountability are two essential “life skills” we strive to develop in our athletes. We are divided into eight (8) different groups based on a variety of factors that include age, ability, maturity, performance and attitude.
