YMCA Program

The fall/winter session will start on October 24, 2016 and run till the end of April. Practice will be help MWF from 5:15-6:45AM. Registration is continuing. Fees will be prorated based on the  $160 fee for the entire season.

The goal of the season will be to improve technique as well as conditioning. The first six weeks of the season will be spent concentrating on freestyle and then we will move onto stroke technique. During this time, workouts will be aimed at improving basic aerobic endurance. Once the stroke basics are perfected, we will start incorporating anaerobic and sprint training.

Sage YMCA Masters are now officially registered as an USMS workout group under the umbrella of Illinois Masters. All USMS registered swimmers will be able to compete in any USMS sanctioned meet including  the St. Charles Superbowl Meet and the Wisconsin State Meet held in Brown Deer, WI. In addition, all YMCA members are eligible to compete in the YMCA Masters National Meet in Sarasota, FL which will be held May 4 – 7th. Instructions on how to register as an individual swimmer.

The Sage YMCA is located at 701 Manor Road, Crystal Lake, IL

  1. The workout for the last day of practice is the same workout as the first day of practice with an added bonus if you finish early. Congratulations! You have come a long way since day 1.
