The Purple Penguins swim team at the Eden Family YMCA has had a strong presence and tradition in the competitive swimming community for almost 40 years. The team’s motto is “Making My Best Better.” The Penguins program strives to offer a great program for every member, from the youngest and newest member to our veteran Senior swimmers.

The Eden Family YMCA’s Purple Penguins Swim Team offers fun, fitness, and friendship to competitive swimmers who are looking to perfect their stroke technique, continue to build endurance and beat their personal bests.
