The Shasta Family YMCA Sharks Swim Team is a year-round, competitive swim team that allows swimmers to continue improving and strengthening their swimming skills after progressing through our year-round learn-to-swim program.

This program will pick up where Stage 5 leaves off.  Participants must know all the basic strokes and be able to swim 25 yards across the pool.  Led by Head Coach Felix Moreno, this program serves swimmers school-age through high school, and is designed with four swim groups to better serve all the ages.

Mako Sharks: Transitional group for Elementary School athletes (swim assessment required).

Tiger Sharks: Elementary School athletes who have completed Swim Stages 5 & 6.

Hammerheads: Middle School athletes who have completed Swim Stages 5 & 6.
