Athlete representatives serve on YMCA Swimming committees to share the perspective of Y athletes, generate new ideas and contribute to the growth and impact of YMCA Swimming. 
Athlete representatives also meet monthly as part of the YMCA Swimming Athlete Council, which provides leadership development, communication and DEI learning opportunities as well as sharing the athlete's perspective.
Athletes must be in 11th or 12th grade and have participated in a YMCA competitive swimming program for at least three (3) years.  Athlete representatives serve one (1) year terms, which may be renewed once.
