  • Join the Joliet Y Jets Swim Team

    JETS_2Color_Gradient_LogoThe Joliet Y JETS Swim Team, one of the area’s most historic youth swimming clubs, is a year-round competitive swimming program that offers instruction and training for swimmers, ages five and up.

    Our positive, professional coaching staff not only builds strong swimmer but strong values as well. We develop all swimmers, from beginners to elite!

    Attend a Fall Swim Clinic at Morris High School

    September 5-8 | 5:30-6:30 p.m.

    Our swim clinics provide swimmers with the opportunity to spend time with our coaches to learn new drills, improve their swimming skills and meet members of the JETS family. Throughout the clinic, our swim coaches will be evaluating each swimmer to determine which team placement level is appropriate based on individual skill level.

    For those who aren’t quite ready for competitive team swimming, the Greater Joliet Area YMCA offers swim lessons and other pre-competitive programs to meet the needs of every child.

    Do I have to be a YMCA member?
    Swimmers do not need a YMCA membership to participate in our swim clinics. However, swimmers must be Facility Members at the Greater Joliet YMCA in order to register for the JETS swim team. You can register online, by calling (815) 729-9622 or by stopping in at your local branch today!
