The YMCA of Dane County has informed the members of the YDC United swim team their program is being relocated from the Lussier Family West YMCA facility to other facilities across town.

The announcement is being met with concern by parents of the approximately 300 children participating in the swim team program. Some parents say they enrolled their children in the program earlier this year because the Westside YMCA was located near their homes and made it possible for them to get their kids to practices on time.

“We set up our life so that our kids can have these opportunities,” says Kristen Velyvis, a parent of a child in the program.
