What Makes Y Swimming Special

The YMCA of Montclair Dolphins Swim Team offers a year round opportunity for competitive swimming in both Y and USA Swimming competitions as well as seasonal instructional clinics for aspiring competitive athletes. The team is comprised of girls and boys from age 6 through high school.

As a YMCA program its goal is to strengthen the foundations of our community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility and is supported by the YMCA of the USA.

The focus is, first and foremost, on the development of healthy, confident, values-centered individuals where training and competition are the vehicles by which this development occurs. In addition, as laid out by the Guiding Principles for YMCA Amateur Sports Competition, we strive to produce an atmosphere conducive to competition and opportunity for all. Everyone involved in the delivery of the program plays a critical role in this process. Coaches, YMCA leaders and volunteers assist individuals in their development by building positive relationships, acting with integrity and leading by example.

Our goal is to deliver a program that creates an excellent environment for developing multiple levels of competitive swimmer from beginners to swimmers who are nationally ranked. We believe the process of following the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in all aspects of our swim program will inevitably lead to success not only in swimming but in all areas of our swimmers’ lives.

In addition to working toward each individual’s personal success, the program stresses the team concept: each participant is a member of the Montclair YMCA Dolphins Swim Team. Membership on the team carries with it responsibility, loyalty, and dedication to each of the team members. Mutual support during training and competition are valuable assets attributable to the program. Parental support and involvement is required and are major incentives for many swimmers at all levels of competitive swimming.

For more information about the team and for tryout information, please see the team website at www.mymdolphins.org/.

Thrills for Threes – Children are assisted with socialization and are encouraged to grow through hands-on art projects, games, music, and play.  Children will be able to master various pre-kindergarten skills (color, shape, group play, name recognition, and cooperation).

  • Provide support as children begin working and playing with one another.
  • Validate the feelings of the emotional three. Celebrate accomplishments, and help seek solutions to problems.
  • Offer a wide variety of materials to encourage sorting and classifying.
  • Play dough and clay are popular with three-year-olds, as are finger paint and tempera paint. Encourage open-ended, process-oriented use of these materials.
  • Offer an array of fine motor materials, such as puzzles, lacing and linking activities, and simple building toys. Sort and organize materials to help children be successful, and rotating materials to maintain interest.
  • Create warm, cheerful rituals for daily tasks such as putting away toys, washing hands, and preparing for nap.
  • Encourage sequencing and recollection skills as teachers discuss events from the recent past, such as a cooking project from earlier in the day.

Time for Twos – For most children this is their first experience in a group without a parent.  We focus on socialization, verbal communication skills and pro-social behavior.  Children participate in group free play, art, music, story time and physical activities.

  • Provide safe, acceptable outlets for active play, indoors and out. Look for ways to allow children to safely challenge themselves as they build gross motor skills.
  • Offer plenty of duplicates of popular toys, and offer children protected places to play with favorite toys. Teacher/parent strategies such as careful supervision and redirection allow children to feel that they can play safely near other children.
  • Provide props to encourage more complex dramatic play. Allow children to take the lead as teachers join in their pretend play.
  • Provide materials that encourage fine motor skills and sorting/matching skills. Use materials that allow children to experience variety, including size, shape, texture, weight, transparency and composition.
