Summer Swim Team Registration

Under the leadership of Head Coach and Aquatics Director, Shawn Columbia, our competitive swimmers are offered the option of swimming with the US year-round team, Fin Aquatics (FAST) and SHARKS Summer Swim Team. Swim team emphasis is on personal skill improvement, as well as good sportsmanship and team spirit. Dedication, teamwork, discipline and goal setting are objectives of the program. Membership with the Randolph-Asheboro YMCA and the ability to swim 25 meters without stopping are required. The Randolph-Asheboro YMCA, for the past twenty five years, has representation at State and National Championships and has nationally ranked swimmers.


FAST Swimming is a USA Swim Club that offers coaching to the Asheboro, Greensboro, and High Point areas of North Carolina. At FAST, coaches focus on technique, goal setting, and motivation in an environment with friends and fun. With these objectives and the dedication and hard work of the swimmer, success and enjoyment are hand in hand.

TIMES: Monday-Saturday, various groups and times.

Asheboro (SHARKS)

The Sharks is a summer league swim team for swimmers ages 6 to 18 (based on age as of June 1).

Practices focus on stroke technique while providing a safe and FUN environment to learn and grow through swimming. It is both an exciting and competitive atmosphere where the goal is to develop each team member as both a swimmer and a person. Practices are a combination of hard work and play. At meets, we instill team spirit by sitting together and cheering on our entire team. Good sportsmanship is a must and the children all create new friendships with our High Point partners.

Registration for the 2021 Summer Swim Team will begin in May. Practice will be on Monday and Wednesdays. The exact times of practices are listed below (days and times could change). The season is 2 months long – concluding with a League Championship Meet in July. The cost for the entire season is $100 – this includes monthly practice dues, meet entry fees, and a team t-shirt and swim cap.

Meets are typically held on Tuesday evenings at various pools. Most meets begin at 6:00pm with warmups at 5pm for home meets and 5:30pm for away meets.
