The Phoenixville YMCA has been awarded Bronze Medal status, ranking it among the Top 200 swim clubs in the nation, by USA Swimming.

A member of the Middle Atlantic Swimming LSC (Local Swimming Committee), Phoenixville was recognized alongside 8 other clubs in the region. In total, USA Swimming recognized 200 clubs nationally in their 2022-2023 Club Excellence Program.

Now in its 23rd year, the program recognizes USA Swimming’s highest-performing clubs in the development of athletes 18 years and younger. The primary objective of the program is to promote:

  • The development of strong, well-rounded programs that produce elite athletes 18 years and younger
  • Resources to motivate and assist USA Swimming member clubs to achieve the highest performance ideals
  • Grant funding
  • Continued excellence in the sport

Swimming and swim instruction is a vital part of the work done every day at the YMCA. The Y is arguably America’s most-prolific swim instructor, having taught millions to safely navigate water, and turn it into a lifelong health and wellness pursuit. Many of the sport’s greatest athletes got their start in a YMCA pool.

What’s more, YMCA Swim Clubs are widely regarded for their inclusion, quality of instruction and athlete development, and their ability to bring communities and regions together.
