Swim Team

Canoe City Swim Club

The Old Town-Orono YMCA’s Canoe City Swim Club (CCSC) has a long history of swimming excellence. CCSC is a member of the Maine YMCA Swim League and Maine US Swimming.  Housed at the Old Town Community Pool adjacent to Old Town High School, CCSC participates in both the summer and winter swim seasons.  Summer season runs from late May to late July while Winter Season runs from mid-September to early April. YMCA membership is required for Winter Season participation.

Swimmers of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate with CCSC and new team members are welcome at any time. Children who are able to swim 2 lengths of the pool, one freestyle and one backstroke area welcome to join CCSC.  Team members learn stroke development, build endurance, develop confidence, and learn the value of teamwork and good sportsmanship.  Younger swimmers will build and refine their swimming skills in a fun and exciting environment, experienced swimmers will gain endurance while fine tuning their skills and gaining more experience.

Canoe City Swim Club is coached Head Coach Zach Gasaway, who is a former CCSC and Old Town High School Swimmer and Old Town High School Head Coach.  Coach Zach and his team of experienced assistant coaches provide a nurturing environment for your child to develop as a swimmer and form friendships that will last a lifetime.  For more information on Canoe City Swim Club, contact the Aquatics Department.
