For those swimmers who can swim 2 full lengths in 2 competitive strokes. It does not have to be pretty or perfect - they just have to be able to get across the pool. If they aren't ready, consider our Pre Team. If you are not certain whether your swimmer belongs on the team or pre team, please either bring your child between 5-5:30pm after May 21st, or have your child attend a pre team practice, (5:00 - 5:30), after May 29th and coaches will assess and advise.
(Registration for team and pre team are the same.)
Please contact the swim chairs with any questions about swim team at: email@example.com .
