The Community YMCA’s competitive swim team, the Aquarockets, produces far more than outstanding swimmers, it develops character, discipline and camaraderie among the over 300 young people on the team.
The team competes in the National YMCA Swimming and Diving and the United States Swimming organizations. Over the years, the team has produced more than 100 All American swimmers, many national champions, and is especially proud of alumnus and current assistant coach Tom Wilkens, who achieved a bronze medal in the 2000 Summer Olympics for his third-place finish.
The Aquarockets are the 2016 New Jersey YMCA State Champions. At the 2016 YMCA Short Course Nationals, Red Bank finished 8th overall in team standings and the Men’s team placed 3rd.
