ABOUT OUR SPECIAL OLYMPICS SWIM TEAM

The North Suburban YMCA’s “Flying Turtles” Swim Team achieved outstanding success in the Special Olympics District Swim Meet, held in Lake Forest, Illinois on March 19. By the end of the event, the team had collected a total of 21 medals, and nine team members had qualified to compete in the Special Olympics Illinois State Games in June. Just as importantly, every swimmer experienced the satisfaction and excitement of facing challenges and surpassing expectations.

Now in its third year at the North Suburban YMCA, the Flying Turtles Swim Team currently includes almost 30 swimmers. Coached by Tom March, the Y’s lead instructor for special needs services, the team brought home 13 gold medals, four silvers, and four bronzes from the March 19 meet. Nine of the swimmers qualified for the State Games, which will be held on June 10. Each participant gained the confidence and accomplishment of competing at a major meet with 20 other teams and enjoyed celebrating the team’s success together. A video created by March shows the pride felt by the team and their families.

“Every swimmer did an amazing job,” notes March. “Whether they were awarded with a first place medal or a participant ribbon, you could just see how they all beamed with their accomplishments. This year was the biggest showing that the North Suburban Y has ever had at the District meet, and we have a record number of swimmers going on to the Special Olympics State Games. I couldn’t be prouder of these swimmers and all they’ve achieved.”
