2 South Shore YMCA at Mill Pond
character Challenging people to accept and demonstrate positive values.
The YMCA works to strengthen core values among members of the community we serve,
so people will act on them when making choices in their lives, and do the right thing (even
when no one is looking!) because they believe it to be the right thing to do.
The YMCA character development program consists of four core values, denoted by the
Caring Red (associated To love others; to be sensitive to the
with a Caring Heart) well being of others; to help others
Honesty Blue (associated To tell the truth; to act in such a way
with True Blue) that you are worthy of trust; integrity
Respect Yellow (associated To treat others as you would have them
with the Golden Rule) treat you; to value one’s worth
Responsibility Green (associated To do what is right; to be accountable
with the Environment) for your behavior and obligations
It is our goal to incorporate and share these core values with our members, program
participants, staff and volunteers.
The South Shore YMCA is a not-for-profit association of
individuals dedicated to improving the quality of life for all
through programs that promote healthy spirit, mind and
body. Rooted in Christian tradition and values, the YMCA
seeks to serve all people regardless of age, gender, race,
religion or economic circumstances.
Our programs and services strive to strengthen the family,
guide the youth of today and meet the ever-changing needs
of our community.
The South Shore YMCA strives to serve the entire community by providing financial assistance. Assistance
is determined based on individual applicant needs. Call Jane Fallon at (781) 829-8585, ext. 308 or visit
ssymca.org for an application. The money used to fund this program is raised each year by volunteers.

SOUTH SHORE YMCA STRYPERS SWIM TEAM
The South Shore YMCA Strypers (SSYS) is a former Silver Medal club under USA Swimming’s National Club excellence pro-
gram. SSYS provides a program that reinforces the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility, and to
develop the individual in a competitive team environment to be successful in swimming and in life.
The Strypers swim team is structured in five practice squads and operates at both the Hanover and Quincy locations.
The practice squads are as follows:
Minis - This is an entry level group for beginning swimmers who are trying swim team for the first time. Ages
range from 6-11 and this group practices three times per week and focuses on fun, water acclimation,
team building, skill and stroke development.
Gold - This group is for swimmers who have consolidated basic skills associated with competitive swimming. Ages
range from 9–13 and this group practices four times per week and introduces more advanced technical skills.
Age Group - This group is for swimmers at an intermediate level of competitive swimming. Ages range from 10–14
and this group practices five times per week in the water with an additional dry-land* component offered
on a Saturday morning. Swimmers in this group have a sound foundation in all four strokes and are intro-
duced to more advanced practice concepts.
Senior II - This group is for swimmers at an advanced level of competitive swimming. Ages range from 11–17 and this
group practices six times per week with an additional three dry-land* training components. Swimmers at this
level are close to or have achieved New England USA and YMCA Swimming Championship cut times.
Senior I - This group is the top tier offered at the Strypers and is comprised of swimmers who are achieving at elite
levels in both USA and YMCA swimming. Ages range from 13–18 and this group practices between six
and eight times per week with an additional three dry-land* training components.

Spark! The Mind Body Math Connection
During weekly one hour sessions, students will move through three segments of math tutoring geared
towards increasing performance, motivation and confidence. Participants will work in a 2:1 student to
teacher ratio to help master grade specific basic math skills, improve MCAS performance, and reinforce
the curriculum seen in school. Participants will also engage in physical activities that will show real life
applications of the math they are working on every day. We are here to show young minds that math does
not have to be boring or intimidating. Let us spark a new interest, motivation and outlook on learning.
