Swim Team

Swimmers ages 4-21 will work on all 4 strokes developing proper technique and training for competitive opportunities. Monthly swim meet opportunities will exist and are encouraged, but not required. 


No previous competitive swimming experience is required, but participants must be able to swim one length of the pool (25 yards) confidently on both the stomach and back. Proper technique is not required, but strong forward motion without stopping is.
