Join the Rye Y Wave Ryeders!

Attention Swimmers 5-18 years old!

The Rye YMCA Wave Ryeders swim team is now taking registrations for the 2015/2016 noncompetitive and competitive swim team for qualified swimmers. The Wave Ryeders have been League Champions for 10 years in a row and have had many state champions at the largest YMCA State meets.

Competitive swimming is a challenging but FUN sport for children. Our team focuses on the fundamentals of swimming and teamwork while creating a love for swimming and instilling our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility in our swimmers.

spinMembers entering the Rye Y’s newly renovated spin studio are immediately struck by the difference. Diamond-plate wall paneling, recessed LED lighting, new fans, wooden shelving and an improved sound system all create a welcoming environment for spinners. Laura Tiedge, Rye Y’s Senior Director of Healthy Living said “Spinning is one of the Y’s most popular classes so we wanted to create a clean, fresh and inviting atmosphere that motivates and excites our members.”
