The early morning sun reveals a myriad of color in the Marco Island YMCA pool. Ten swimmers power though the blue water stroke after stroke, turn after turn lap after lap all with one goal — to better themselves. They are part of the YMCA swim team and dive into the pool as the clock strikes 7 a.m., every day except Sunday. For two hours they swim contiuous laps, with only a few seconds to rest between sets. No whistles are needed to tell them when to begin sets. When the last swimmer touches the wall, all eyes watch the hand to the 60-second clock as it rounds the top, and they begin the next set.
