Controversy over practice changes at Dane County YMCA



The YMCA of Dane County’s swim team practice times and pool locations are going back to normal. This comes after Y aquatics staff told parents their swimmers would be shuffled around to deal with overcrowding. The Y made the changes to free up space for other use. Upset by the decision, 120 swimmers left the team, essentially solving the overcrowding issue. But even with the schedules remaining the same, there’s still tension between families who’ve stayed and Y management.

“This isn’t swimming lessons. For our family, if there’s practice, I take them there,” said YMCA swim team mom Sheryl Terry.
