Arriving at swim camp at the University of North Carolina ready to work are, swimmers Caleb Freyer, John Grey Crosby, Michael Paglio, Catherine Condon, S.B. Sisney, Darrien Gardner and Chrissie Wall.

YMCA/USA Wahoo coaches, parents and swimmers are working together this summer.
Head coach Mary Wall has the same philosophy with coaching swimming as she does with teaching school: to get better at anything one must understand the importance of being a life-long learner and a team player.
Coaches have been utilizing outside swimming resources/clinics to help the coaches and swimmers. Wall said that group dedication, training, and the willingness to learn are all key factors in building a great team.
There are a total of 20 swimmers attending camp this summer. Ella Speir, only 8 years old, went to the University of North Carolina on her own earlier this month and had a blast. Eight Wahoo swimmers carpooled their way to UNC camp on June 16.
More swimmers will be attending camp in July.
The Georgetown YMCA/USA Team has quickly grown from 15 to 40 swimmers. By September all swimmers will be Georgetown YMCA/USA team members (with the exception of strictly summer swimmers).
Also this summer, swimmers will still be competing in meets in Myrtle Beach and Columbia.
The Wahoo swim team is currently accepting new swimmers. Being a part of this league involves competitive swimming against other YMCA swim teams across the state and attending the state meets held at the end of each swim season. All members receive ribbons at the meets throughout the season and a medal at the end of the season banquet.  
For more information on joining the team or taking swim lessons contact the Georgetown County Family YMCA at 545-9622 or visit www.coastalcarolinaymca.org.
