The East Side/Mt. Hope YMCA is a nationally recognized YMCA and its swim team, the Sea Lions, is a registered USA Swimming swim team with New England Swimming. The ESY swims in the Southeastern New England Community of YMCAs (SENECY).

The swim team is designed for all levels of competition, from beginners to national qualifiers. We offer a guided developmental swim program for ages 5-18. Beyond the YMCA nine-meet season, swimmers who qualify can compete in YMCA New Englands and YMCA Nationals, held twice a year in the spring and summer. As a Sea Lions member, swimmers compete in YMCA sanctioned meets,  obtain coaching from experienced staff members, learn teamwork and goal setting and have fun developing friendships that last a lifetime!  

VOLUNTEER as an Assistant Swim Instructor!

We encourage our older group of Swim Team members to consider the opportunity to share their swimming skills with younger children just learning to swim.  Many schools require students to volunteer at local organizations as part of curriculum.  The East Side/Mt. Hope YMCA offers volunteer positions to our Swim Team participants as Assistant Swim Instructors.  this is an excellent opportunity to begin to build an impressive resume, learn work ethic and reap the rewards of giving back to help nurture our youngest swimmers!  Click here for our volunteer application (PDF).
