About the Team

The Batavia YMCA Sea Devils are an age group swim team that competes in the West Cluster of the Buffalo-Rochester Area YMCA swim league that has teams from Buffalo to Geneva.

All team members must be members in good standing of the GLOW YMCA.

Trial Weeks

          Anyone new to the program will be allowed to try the team for two weeks before making the commitment to join. This will allow prospective swimmers to participate; get to know the coaches and their teammates and to determine if the Sea Devils are right for them.
