North Side Y

2020 Swim Team Information:

Due to heavy restrictions placed on the GKAISA swim season due to COVID-19 that drastically limit our ability to offer group swim meets and practices, the North Side Y will not be participating in the 2020 summer swim season. However, we are offering a summer swim clinic in its place.

If you have questions regarding the GKAISA summer swim season, please email our Aquatics Director, Julie Walker at [email protected] for more information.
